We encourage children to have fun in whatever way they wish to fundraise with activities, challenges and sales, on the day of our event, team members from Naomi House and Jacks Place come along and read each childs individual contributions to our event through their hard work and they select 4 Names for the ways they had fun in fundraising and not by the amount they raised, our overall fundraising winner is always awarded a fantastic prize for their effort and their support.
