Champions of Change is a unique fundraising education initiative - by children, for children.

Champions of Change makes fundraising easy and puts the students in charge. It provides everything a school or nursery needs to plan exciting, curriculum-based lessons and run rewarding fundraising events.

This unique education initiative gives early years, primary and secondary school children the chance to take the lead and raise money to help disadvantaged children and young people. Students will be empowered to plan and run their own events culminating in a Celebration of Champions. BBC Children in Need and Lloyds Bank will provide flexible resources, which can be adapted to specific age ranges, to help young people learn and develop new skills while they raise money for charity. During the Appeal Week, participating children will take part in an Assembly of Champions to show off what they have achieved to the rest of the school.
