SMILE: Hope in the Community

Smile £10 Challenge

For the past four years, Hope Primary have been involved with ‘The Windmills Foundation’ through its Smile £10 Challenge.

It is a national programme that allows young children the opportunity to get involved by fulfilling their potential, maximising their skills, building their confidence and leaving a lasting legacy by making a difference in their local communities.

We have focused on working with Year 6 children however this year, we have expanded to include year 5 children.

The challenge consists of using their combined skills, talent and relationships coupled with a donation of £10 to make the world a better place by creating a sustainable difference in their wider community. 

The only rule is a simple one; they cannot give the £10 away. The challenge is about developing a project to make others smile.

Feedback from the recipients of the Smile £10 Challenges:

‘Thank you so much for the smiles that were put on all of our faces.  The oldies loved it and they said how polite and well-behaved the children were.’
