Roald Dahl's Marvellous Childrens Charity

Take part in Roald Dahl Day celebrations and raise funds for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity

This Roald Dahl Day, we invite you to host your own Roald Dahl Day Party and raise much needed funds for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.

Roald Dahl Day Fundraising

We help families facing serious illness overcome life’s toughest challenges by funding Roald Dahl Nurses and Marvellous Family Grants. By donating, you can help more families access specialist children's nurses and family support. Help seriously ill children, young people and their families lead a marvellous life with your Roald Day Day party.

Roald Dahl Day is an annual celebration of the World's Number One Storyteller Roald Dahl. Schools, community groups, companies and individuals take part in parties across the nation to celebrate Roald Dahl and support our charity. If you're a teacher or parent, click here for more information.

This year, we're celebrating bravery, to champion the families affected by serious illness who are brave everyday. Just like Zaris, who has Sickle Cell Anemia and doesn't let her condition get in the way of her ability to lead a marvellous life, thanks to the support she receives from her Roald Dahl Nurse Edith. Zaris played Matilda in the West End musical version of Roald Dahl's much-loved story.

Celebrate with us on 13 September - Roald Dahl’s Birthday, or any day you like - and raise money by hosting a Roald Dahl Day Party. We've got tons of ideas to help you put the FUN into FUNdraising. You could:

  • Host a Roald Dahl revolting recipe bake sale - You could even bake your own Bruce Bogtrotter, deliciously indulgent chocolate cake - yum!
  • Throw a lucky golden ticket raffle - Ask your local community to donate some prizes and spread the word about our charitable work.
  • Hold a Roald Dahl quiz - in the office or a local venue and test your knowledge of Roald Dahl’s world - truly terrific!
  • Use your imagination - Got another idea? Excellent! Be brave like Matilda and come up with your own fantastic fundraising idea.

How Your Money Helps

Your generous donations can help more children like Zaris. We're immensely grateful for your support, be it big or small. Here's some more information on how your money could help:

  • £50 - pays for a play specialist session to help reduce anxiety about treatment and hospital visits
  • £180 - pays for a day of nursing from a specialist Roald Dahl Nurse
  • £700 - pays for an epilepsy monitor to help parents monitor their child at night
