Pyjamarama: what's inside your free downloadable fundraising pack

We've put together some brilliant bundles full of everything you need to get children and adults joining in the Pyjamarama fun.

So many of you have signed-up to take part in Pyjamarama – and we’re so excited to have you on board!

If you signed-up before 22 May and qualified for a printed pack, then you will receive this in the post. Due to the huge volume of people taking part, if you’ve just signed up to Pyjamarama (welcome!), you will receive a downloadable pack via email (as we have no more printed packs available), with an array of downloadable items for you to get stuck in to and enjoy.

Below is a taster of what you will receive.
