Making Memories… Giving Hope

Dance the Day Away

Dance the Day Away

Hear the beat, feel the rhythm and get into the groove for CHICKS!

If you’re a primary school or primary school teacher this is for you!

Dance the Day Away is an event for schools that encourages children to get active, to dance, have fun and at the same time raise money for CHICKS so that we can provide more respite breaks and new adventures for the children who really need them.

Hold your school's own dance-themed fundraising event on a day of your choice and help CHICKS enable children in need from across the UK to enjoy a CHICKS respite break where they can have adventures, make new friends and create happy, childhood memories!

Ella Gilling, from CBBC’S Next step explains “Even if you dance like a Dad no one cares … that’s what it’s all about! Whether you’re planning to organise a sponsored hip hop class, knee buckling barn dance or full on dance-a-thon, you’ll find everything you need to raise money in the Dance the Day Away Resource Pack.

CHICKS is an incredible charity and by holding a Dance the Day Away event you will help provide hundreds of children living in the most desperate conditions with the chance to escape their worries and pressures. With your money raised, children who’ve been bullied, abused or bereaved, who are young carers or living in poverty will experience a week-long break with CHICKS, where they’ll be challenged, inspired, changed and returned to their lives with the knowledge that CHICKS cares, believes in them and that they can achieve more than they ever thought possible.”
