Take part in a fundraising activity for a charity
Notes (to be given out at least a week in advance)
This is just one idea. Discuss with your Leaders some ideas that might interest the Ladybirds and encourage them to fundraise for a charity.
The Ladybirds will take part in a 5 minute silence in order to fundraise for a charity of the Leaders’ choice.
• The Ladybirds will need to be given a sponsorship card (it may be necessary to place a limit on the fundraising per child/family)
• At the previous week’s meeting they could also be told to bring a book/colouring book etc. in order to keep themselves occupied while completing the silence
• If the selected charity is appropriate it should be explained to the Ladybirds in a child friendly way what they are raising money for
• The Leader should also have additional colouring materials available for the Ladybirds while they are completing their silence
Note: If Ladybirds are seeking sponsorship they should only ask family members and not go door to door.
