Your DaisyFest starts here!

This year marks 25 years since we first began delivering our service to children and their families facing the most difficult of times, and so we’ve launched DaisyFest so that everyone can join in and help us celebrate in style!

Now the sun is shining and we can meet in small groups, create that festival feeling this summer at home, school or work, or even your local park, and raise funds for our 25th Anniversary Appeal.

We’ve got lots of fab online resources available to help, from cake picks to invitations, so you can hold your very own daisy-themed festival of fun. 

Note: Please ensure that your DaisyFest is held in line with current Government advice on Covid-19. 

Some ideas to get you started …

The school field 

Students can colour in our printable daisies and make a giant daisy chain to decorate, hang up the bunting and play some festival tunes. Sell snacks and drinks – they could even be daisy themed and charge a small entrance fee to attend. 

Your back garden 

Turn your back garden into a DaisyFest, hang up the bunting, pitch the tent and nominate the DJ - you could even paint your faces and get the glitter out to get in the festival mood!

Outside workspace

Rally your work colleagues and get a BBQ going for your DaisyFest, ask everyone to wear the Daisy’s Dream colours; green, orange and yellow, to create a fun festival feel. 

Share the love

Take lots of photos, or even a video, of your DaisyFest and send them into us – we’d love to be able to share your celebrations over the summer with our wonderful supporters. You might even encourage someone else to hold their own DaisyFest too! 

And if you're sharing on your own social media, don't forget to tag us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and use #daisyfest to spread the word far and wide.

Make a difference

All of the funds raised by DaisyFest will go directly towards our work supporting children and young people, and their families, who have been bereaved or are living in a family where someone has a life-limiting illness. You can pay in your fundraising by totting it up and making a donation online, a bank transfer, sending a cheque or popping into our office with cash. Thank you.
