What do you need to do?
Get your School Council/Charity Committee representatives to record all the great stuff that your school already does in the name of charity throughout the school year - this might be campaigning, peer initiatives, fundraising or volunteering. Students input all their actions and activities into your school's Giving Nation Award Diary. The closing date for diary entries is Monday 19th July. If you wish to document your activities from this academic year contact us to receive your unique school log in details. Contact details at the bottom of the page.
