#WearPurpleForJIA - 7th June 2019

Wear Purple at School

#WearPurpleForJIA at School can be as simple as asking your school to support the cause by letting students and staff wear purple on Friday, 7th June 2019. Here are some ideas to help you get started:

  • Once you have received your Wear Purple pack take it into your school or nursery to get them involved and agree to taking part on 7th June!

  • Advertise the day in and around your school using the posters provided inside the pack.

  • Let people know about JIA by displaying the ‘What is JIA?’ poster next to your event poster.

  • Get the school to add it to the school newsletter or send it via email to parent contacts. 

  • Ask classmates to donate £1 or a suitable donation on the day.

  • Find something purple to wear and have fun!

Organise a Purple Tea Party or Bake Sale at School

Hosting a Purple Tea Party or Bake Sale with your friends at school can be fun, with delicious fairy cakes and cookies for everyone.

STEPS

  1. Ask permission, from your Headteacher to hold the sale.

  2. Advertise your Tea Party or Bake Sale using the posters provided in the Fundraising pack or by sending photocopied leaflets home with your classmates.

  3. Ask for donations of cakes and cookies to help boost your sales.

  4. If you are holding a Tea Party set an amount to charge people or ask for donations on the day.

  5. If you are holding a Bake Sale make sure you clearly price your cakes and cookies.

  6. Ensure all items baked or donated are clearly labelled for allergen advice.

  7. Decorate your tables with your balloons and stickers and put out your collection boxes on the day.

  8. Ensure you have enough help on the day of the sale or tea party and have some bags for people to take away their purchases.
