NSPCC Number Day

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

Schools across the UK are being encouraged to take part in a maths-inspired fundraising day in aid of the NSPCC.

Since it launched 20 years ago, 3,500 schools have taken part in fun activities for “Number Day” and raised nearly £2 million in the process for the NSPCC.

Money collected so far has been used to protect children through services such as Childline and “Speak out. Stay Safe”, a programme which helps children understand the signs of abuse and neglect and who to talk to if they are worried.

The day takes place on Friday, February 7, when schools can take part in a range of curriculum-based activities, all free and provided by the charity, to liven up their lessons. These include “Who wants to be a Mathionaire”, “Number Hunt”, “Wish Upon a Star”, “Speedy Tables”, “Measuring Mayhem” and “Tricksy Maths”.
