Whether you play ball games, board games or a huge game of rounders, the important thing is to take part. Down tools, connect, and have fun in whatever way suits you best!

Once you register you’ll receive a welcome letter and stickers in the post. You’ll also get a link to The Big Breaktime resources page with loads of useful things to help plan your day including posters, games and tons of activity ideas!

Where will your donations go?

The NSPCC is the UK’s leading children’s charity, protecting children and preventing abuse.

Around 90 per cent of the NSPCC’s income comes from their supporters, including schools and parents. They simply couldn’t keep their vital services running without the support of people like you. Every pound you raise and donate will all add up to help children. The money you raise could help to fund Childline, a service that’s there 24/7, for any child or young person to turn to, whatever difficulty they’re facing.

  • £4 could pay for a trained volunteer counsellor to answer a call to Childline.
  • £25 could pay for an hour of a practitioner’s time, helping children to recover from abuse.
