From bake sales to fancy dress days, there are so many ways you can help children and young people fundraise for us. Your valuable support helps us fund innovative equipment, education, research and wellbeing support across our four hospitals and community services in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Salford.

Whether you want to fundraise for our specialist children’s ward at The Royal Oldham Hospital, or donate money to say thank you to all our NHS staff, our fundraising team is here to support you with fun and educational activities. 

If you're already planning to fundraise for us, or simply want some inspiration, please fill in our fundraising interest form.

You can also contact the team via our Contact Us page.

By choosing us as your school’s chosen charity, we can work with you to plan and organise engaging and educational fundraising activities for pupils, staff and parents. We can also support you with fundraising materials.

From sponsored sports days and competitions to fundraising badges and bake sales, your fundraising events make a huge difference to the work we do. These events are also a great way to engage with your local community.

Our fundraising team would love to help you run an assembly presentation about the important work our NHS does to save and improve lives locally. This is a great way to engage children and young people with our cause, learn about the NHS or support your fundraising activities.

Fundraising not only helps children and young people empathise with a worthy cause, but also helps them develop skills that align to the curriculum. Enterprise competitions that challenge students to use ‘seed money’ to turn an initial sum into a larger amount can support business and maths learning. Creating posters, writing persuasive text and designing fundraising tools can be incorporated into English, IT and art lessons. We would love to hear about your ideas.
