There’s no obstacle to helping children

As the Easter break comes to an end, schools across the country are looking forward to warmer days, where children can enjoy the spring term with more outdoor play.

Play is such an important part of childhood. It’s the joy of getting your wellies muddy, or of ‘tag, you’re it!’.

It’s what every child should have, but for millions of children around the world, war, disaster, hunger and poverty are getting in the way.

Soccer Aid for UNICEF helps children around the world get the best start in life, and we’re calling for schools across the UK to use their play time to help kids who face barriers to their own play times by taking on the Soccer Aid for UNICEF School’s Challenge.

Open to all children regardless of ability, we’re encouraging all schools to design an obstacle course to take on each other’s skills, while raising money to help UNICEF’s work for children worldwide.

Pupils can dribble, kick or bounce a ball, sprint, skip or hop across the playground and help kids have the playtimes they deserve.
