We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our DinoDay Stomp & Roar Challenge has raised an incredible total of £15,340!

A dinosaur-sized thank you to the 355 families who took on our very first challenge event to raise money to help fund our vital support services.

We were blown away by the creative ideas for the challenges, all centred around the number 19. From trying 19 new foods to whizzing down 19 zip lines, and someone even taught their baby brother to walk for 19 days.

It was heart-warming to see children of all ages and abilities proudly wearing their DinoDay t-shirts to support Contact. Thank you to each and every little, medium and large dinosaur for Stomping and Roaring for us on DinoDay – your enthusiasm made this a truly memorable event.

A stegosaurus-ly HUGE thank you to every one of you who took part in our DinoDay challenge this June and for making it such a success! Every penny you raised will make a real difference to the families we support.

Thank you to all the roar-some schools and nurseries

We were delighted to see schools and nurseries nationwide come together in a spectacular display of dino-spirit, all in support of Contact. A special mention goes to Toddler’s Den Nursery for raising an impressive £461! They led their little ones on a 19-minute stomping adventure through the local area, all dressed as dinosaurs and donning the colour green.

The difference the money will make

The money you helped raise this DinoDay will help us continue running our vital services, which include:

And more!

Join the fun next year

If you fancy having fun with your family while raising money to support Contact, we would love to have you onboard #TeamDinoDay!

There’s no fundraising target, all you need to do is take on a challenge with the number 19 in the theme. We’ll also send your child a free t-shirt and activity tracker.

We’ll be inviting participants to sign up in early 2024, so watch this space!
