My Marsden March for schools

My Marsden March for schools

My Marsden March is a fun, exciting and easy way to get children active outdoors while raising money to help The Royal Marsden provide the very best in cancer diagnosis, research, treatment and care for patients of all ages. 

 

We can help your school plan and organise a sponsored walk anytime, anywhere. You choose a location, distance and date that suits your school and our Schools Liaison Team will help with all the arrangements.


From short walks for young pupils to longer hikes for older ones, and from village walks to countryside rambles, it’s up to you. My Marsden March is suitable for school groups of any size and stage, from nursery through to sixth form.

 

Children can also get involved in fun and creative activities to personalise their event, such as making flags and dressing up.  

We'll provide materials including T-shirts for teachers, pin badges for kids, collection tins and posters. We can even come and talk to your school and inspire pupils and staff.  

Here are a few stories of schools who have enjoyed doing their own events: 

 






“It was nice to raise money for people who aren’t as well as us, as well as having lots of fun.  I was happy to present the cheque for what we had raised, and help the little ones to understand how important this charity is.”
– Lauren, Head Girl

“A simple, manageable event to organise. We had fun raising lots of money for a great cause very close to our hearts.”
– Shella Hossenbux, teacher 

Fundraising

We have a customisable poster for you to download that you can put up around your school to help raise awareness of your walk. We can also provide handy collection boxes to make it easy for your school to collect sponsorship money.

JustGiving is another convenient way to fundraise. When you set up a page for your school’s walk you’ll be given your own URL. You can then share this link with parents, pupils and colleagues in letters, magazines and newsletters, and online through email and social media.
