19 June is DinoDay, our annual fundraising event to raise vital funds so we can be there for even more UK families with disabled children. 

This year, we’d love as many of you as possible to be part of #TeamDinoDay, and it couldn’t be easier.


  • Choose a family-friendly activity to take on this June. It could be visiting the park 19 times. It could be drawing 19 dinosaurs, walking 19 miles over the month, or doing 19 star jumps. Big or small, the activity you choose is totally up to you – as long as the number 19 is involved! 
  • Complete our registration form and we’ll send you a free t-shirt for your mini-roarer and a printed activity tracker.  
  • Set up your Facebook fundraising page for Contact
  • Ask your friends and family to sponsor you! Raising funds for Contact means we can support more disabled children and their families. 

Get a free t-shirt and printed activity tracker

When you complete our registration form, you’ll get a free child’s DinoDay t-shirt and printed activity tracker to make sure your challenge is a roaring success!

Join our #TeamDinoDay Facebook group

When you register, you’ll also be invited to join our DinoDay Stomp and Roar Facebook Group.

There, you can meet other families taking part and find helpful tips and ideas of things to do. And you’ll also find some dinosaur-related activities to do!

Could you ask your child’s primary school to get involved in DinoDay?

We’re inviting schools to participate by asking their children to wear green to school for the day for a suggested donation of £1 per child.

Any school that raises money for us this DinoDay can also enter our competition to win a box of sensory toys worth £100 from our Fledglings shop.

Why your help would be Dino-mite!

By taking on the DinoDay Challenge and raising funds for Contact, you’ll be helping us continue to transform the lives of families with disabled children with our vital services and information.

The inspiration behind DinoDay

DinoDay was inspired by a little boy called Cameron Mathieson and his amazing family.

With Contact’s help, successfully challenged the government through the courts to make things fairer for families with disabled children.

The money you raise this June will also help us campaign to tackle the inequalities that families with disabled children face, like we did for Mathieson’s family and the thousands of others.
