Thank you for thinking of fundraising for Children 1st.

Now more than ever, Scotland’s most vulnerable families need your support, as they face the additional stresses and challenges of coping through coronavirus. We will continue to be there providing practical and emotional support to give them help and relief.

All children and families safety and wellbeing is our top priority so, given the current government and health advice regarding coronavirus, some of our events are postponed until later in the year.

If you can fundraise for us in other ways, or make a donation, to help us meet the urgent needs of children and families in these difficult and challenging circumstances, our fundraising team would love to speak to you.

We will keep this page updated as we take decisions about future events and hope to see you at one of them, later in the year.
