Create a Crown Day!

We'd love your school to join us for Create a Crown Day.

Any day during the week commencing Monday 23rd May, join primary schools across Yorkshire to raise money for Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity and celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Encourage children to wear their own clothes to school and create and wear their very own royal crown!
How it works

Children are invited to wear their own clothes to school, incorporating something blue or yellow (or both!) to raise awareness and vital funds for Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity.

They will be asked to decorate a crown to wear for the day, using the template provided.

Send us your crown pictures and let us know the pupil who made the most creative crown in the school, and we will send them a special certificate!

They'll then be entered to compete against all the other participating schools across Yorkshire to win an overall prize.

Meet our friend Toby

Toby was our inspiration for Create a Crown Day. He encouraged all the children at his school to take part in a "crazy hat day" to raise money for Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity in memory of his grandad.

Toby's friends all wore a fun hat, some made by hand, to school.

With the help of his school community, Toby managed to raise a whopping £514.74!!!

All the money raised will go towards funding life-changing research and support for anyone affected by a brain tumour right here in Yorkshire.

A huge thank you to Team Toby!
