Den Day

On Sunday 19th June we’re inviting you all to build dens for Save the Children’s Den Day. We intend to start at 2.00 pm and finish at about 4.00 pm. It’s a fun way for your children to raise funds that will change children’s lives, while they learn new skills and important lessons about the world around them. They will be joining children from around the UK to unleash their imaginations and transforming Parsons Wood and the surrounding area into a collection of amazing dens. We’re asking children to bring in a £2 donation to take part. The money they raise will be sent to Save the Children so they can help make life better for children around the world who don’t have a safe place to sleep at night.

We will provide sticks  and string. All the children will need is a little guidance and some imagination in covering their dens to make them habitable.

Of course, there is nothing stopping adults participating as well – why should the children have all the fun?

Den Day will be an amazing adventure for all – and as well as having lots of fun we will be making a big difference to children in some of the world’s poorest countries.

We would really appreciate your help to raise money for this great cause and make Den Day an experience your children will always remember!
