Wear one colour or pattern from head to toe!

Have some fun in the office this Christmas (12-16 December) and raise money to help transform the lives of some of the UK’s most disadvantaged children through the power of the arts.

How it works:


1. Each member of staff pays £3 to wear just one colour or pattern to work.

2. Take a team photo to capture the happiness and tweet @childrenandarts with #ColourMeHappy

3. Iconic TV presenter Neil Buchanan, famous for hosting CITV show Art Attack, will judge the best and most creative photo and the winner will be announced on social media.

4. Every company who shares a photo of themselves will be sent a certificate signed by Neil to be proudly displayed in your office.

5. The money raised will help fund inclusive arts education programmes for children across the UK, who due to social, economic or physical disadvantage have been excluded from the benefits engagement with the arts can bring.


Why not combine your Colour Me Happy day with a bake sale to raise extra funds?

Everyone loves a sweet treat so holding a bake sale in your school or office is the perfect way to make sure you get the donations rolling in. Stick to the theme with colourful cupcakes, bright battenburgs, and polka dot pies.
