Hi, I'm Zak the Zebra - mascot for road safety charity Brake.
Welcome to my fundraising page for schools!
Here are some of my ideas on how you can raise money to help Brake campaign for safer roads and support road crash victims. As well as supporting a worthy cause, fundraising also helps children understand the concept of helping others and empathise with those less fortunate than themselves.
You can invite me to attend your school here or visit my page.
THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK!
Wear Your Stripes Day
Organise a Wear Your Stripes Day and ask your children and staff to dress like me!
Get them to swap their school uniform for fun, bright, stripy clothes in exchange for a donation to Brake.
Almost everyone has something striped in their wardrobe and you can accessorise by printing off my Zak mask.
Bake for Brake
Grab your aprons and make some delicious treats to sell during or after school!
Baking is one of the simplest things in the world and everyone loves a biscuit or cupcake, particularly if they know their extra calorie intake is all in a good cause. You can have your own one-off sale, tie it in with my Wear Your Stripes Day or sell tasty treats during a big event such as a school fete, coffee morning or disco.
I've given some classic recipes a road safety twist to give you a start:
