Are you an ESOL teacher?
Organising a fundraising event for the Trust is a brilliant opportunity for students to develop a range of language skills while linking with the curriculum for ESOL, citizenship and various linked skills, and gaining a certificate from the Trust as well. Successful ESOL fundraising events have already been held across the UK and students have responded enthusiastically, using language in a real situation.
If your students are planning to raise funds for us, please could you let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide support.
Please note that there are some legal requirements regarding raffles and tombolas. They should only be run as part of another event and the draw should take place at that event - otherwise you have to register with the local authority and pay a fee. So, for example, students could run a food sale and have a raffle at the same time - see Introduction to raffles briefing. We strongly recommend you always run raffles and tombolas as part of another event.
Student fundraising materials
These materials have been developed by the Trust, but we have also worked in coordination with the British Council on their NEXUS project :
Big Walk teaching materials
We have produced some materials relating to the Big Walk which you can find here.
Ruth Hayman Trust is very grateful for the generous and selfless way in which ESOL students have raised money to help others.
