If you’re looking for a simple primary school fundraising idea, we’ve got something you’ll love.

ActionAid’s Big Me is a dress up day with a difference.

Pupils dress up as their future selves and teachers receive a free pack of resources to help children explore their aspirations. Together, you will raise money to help ActionAid change children’s lives in the world’s poorest places.
