Every day in Scotland 25 people will have a stroke, 30 people will have a heart attack, 46 people will be diagnosed with heart failure and 1 in 11 people will struggle to breathe because of chronic chest illness.
Your school can help us make sure no one has to recover alone. With your amazing fundraising superhero powers, you can make sure people with chest, heart and stroke conditions in your community get the support they really need.
Not only is being a Superhero School super fun, but fundraising projects are also a creative way for children and young people to learn about the importance of charity and teamwork, while keeping them entertained and motivated after a challenging year through the pandemic.
It’s also a great way to learn, grow, support others and give back to your local community.
Our activities support many different aspects of the Curriculum for Excellence, from Expressive Arts and Health & Wellbeing to Social Studies and Religious & Moral Education.
Your class or school will be given a whole range of Superhero resources to help them with their fundraising activities and will feel a great sense of achievement when they learn from our fundraising team all about the difference their support will make.
We can help the whole school stay fit and active and learn about how helping others can help you too.
