Go Purple Day

Join schools across the UK and organise a Go Purple Day during Children's Grief Awareness Week - 18th-25th November 2021

Why not Go Purple for Grief Encounter? Help raise vital funds for bereaved children and young people, and have some fun dressing up, decorating and donating!

With a suggested donation of £2 per student/employee, we’d love everyone to take part in this amazing initiative.

Ways you can fundraise

  • Wear a purple item of clothing
  • Decorate your hair with purple hairspray, ribbons and bows
  • Turn your school/office purple
  • Bake and sell purple cakes
  • Organise a purple-themed sports event

We couldn’t do what we do, without you. With no government funding, we rely on generous voluntary donations so we can continue providing vital services to bereaved children, young people and their families after the death of someone close.

To sign your school up today, register below. If you have any more questions, please email us.
