Smarties Challenge

Did you know that a Smarties tube can hold more than £12 when filled with 20 pence pieces?

In January 2015, we launched the Smarties Challenge in schools in the Marlborough area and had great success, raising hundreds of pounds.

If you would like to take on the challenge, one of our Community Fundraisers can come to your school and give a talk to the pupils about Prospect Hospice and the Smarties Challenge; they will then give each participating child a tube of Smarties for free!*

The pupils are asked to go and fill their tubes-with 20 pence pieces, to be returned by an agreed deadline. A cheque presentation and press release for local media coverage can be arranged to celebrate the funds raised.

You will find a downloadable Smarties Challenge poster template on this page which can be displayed around your school.

If you would like to take on the challenge or for more information, please fill in the enquiry form here.

*We ask for the cost to be covered for any unreturned or empty tubes.
