Partnership between SchoolsWorld and The Giant Sleepover to help break World Records and Save Lives!
SchoolsWorld and The Giant Sleepover in association with UNICEF join forces to help deliver a world record breaking sleepover.
The two Brands join forces as official digital media partners to help drive awareness and the support with media coverage of this life saving record attempt. We are calling on children and youth group leaders to join the tens of thousands who are signing up to enjoy fun, friendship and fundraising at the world’s largest sleepover on the weekend of 16th and 17th June 2012.
Registered groups will be sleeping away from home in school halls, tents and even across the lake from the spooky Alton Towers ruins! All proceeds from the event go directly to UNICEF to support their work with children. This year the focus is to help save children’s lives by giving families insecticide-treated mosquito nets. Providing one net costs just £4 and by attending a Giant Sleepover in association with UNICEF UK, kids can have fun and help save lives.
Registration is simple schools and youth groups can register via the website www.giantsleepover.com And by popular demand every group will receive a Treasure Chest containing goodies for all participants.
Fun activities on offer include cookery, sports, crafts, story-telling, midnight feasts and treasure hunts. Each group will also receive their very own mosquito net and exclusive UNICEF story and activity to help them understand how their sleepover is helping children across the world.
The Giant Sleepover is also supported by the Parent Teacher Association, Girlguiding UK, The Boys and Girls Brigades, Sea Cadets, St John Ambulance and sporting associations including The Football Association and The England and Wales Cricket Board.
“SchoolsWorld are thrilled to be able to support such a wonderful initiative, the sleepover which will see children from all over the UK working together to raise money for those less privileged than themselves is exactly the kind of BIG thinking community sharing SchoolsWorld wants to encourage, we look forward to what will be a great event for all!”
Sandie Dinning, one of the founders of the Giant Sleepover said, “Our ambition is to harness the power of mass participation to bring young people together for a memorable event, where they can have fun, raise funds and make a difference. We hope this year’s event will be the biggest and best yet!”
