Thank you for thinking of fundraising for Children 1st.

Now more than ever, Scotland’s children and 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.

Due to the current government and health advice regarding coronavirus, many 2020 events have been cancelled or postponed to 2021. 

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, and other organisations, take decisions about future events and hope to see you at one of them.
