We're fundraising for wellies and waterproofs for underprivileged UK schoolchildren to help them get outdoors whatever the weather.

by Outdoor Classroom Day in United Kingdom

No child should face a shortage of outdoor play this winter.

Over 90% of teachers globally say that access to nature is even more important to children following the pandemic. That's why the Outdoor Classroom Day movement, led in the UK and Ireland by Learning through Landscapes with Semble, advocates for time outdoors every day for every child.

But for many UK families, providing growing children with appropriate clothing for outdoor play simply isn’t affordable: 4.3 million children were living in poverty in the UK prior to the pandemic and, with projections of a financially difficult winter ahead, many families’ purses are already being squeezed tighter.

That’s why we need your help.

Quality time outdoors is crucial for children’s health and wellbeing, but many children missed out on time outside during the pandemic – especially those from underprivileged or marginalised backgrounds.

Last year, we raised £6,000 to provide over 200 sets of waterproof clothing to 7 schools from underprivileged areas across the UK.

This year, we want to do even better. And we’ve once again teamed up with high-quality and sustainable clothing suppliers Muddy Puddles to do so, whose 50% discount means that every penny you donate will go twice as far!

Please share our campaign and donate today to help every child access the benefits of learning and play outdoors, whatever the weather.
