Please help local children make healthy choices

Life Education Wessex & Thames Valley provides age-appropriate health wellbeing and drug education to children aged 3 - 13 years in Wessex (Dorset, Devon, Somerset and Hampshire) and the Thames Valley (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and East Swindon).

Our aim is to ensure that children have the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to make healthy choices and to avoid risky behaviours.

All our programmes are delivered by specially trained Educators. The programmes for Primary School children are delivered in a purpose-built mobile classroom, or 'Life Bus', and include role play, music, drama and specially made film to get our healthy messages across. All of the programmes feature Harold the giraffe - our puppet mascot - who is loved by all the children. Programme modules for older pupils - on drugs, alcohol or smoking - are delivered in the school classroom. 

For every school we visit we need to raise £355 each day.

With your help we can ensure that the young children across our region stay  healthy and happy. 

If you would like to take part in Harold's 1,000 Challenges (it's free!) and help us raise much needed funds by undertaking a sponsored activity or challenge of your choice, please click on the 'Start Fundraising' link above.

Thank you
