Your fundraising matters more than ever, so pick a fundraising idea this October and throw a purple twist on it to Plaster It Purple!
We need you to Plaster It Purple with friends, family, colleagues and classmates for our young patients, their families and NHS teams.
We are relying on your help to continue our life-changing projects and services at Scotland's busiest children's hospital. Without your help, we cannot be there for those children in hospital who need us most.
Plaster It Purple is a fun-filled way to raise plenty of purple pounds for our brave young patients, their families and our hospital heroes.
Everyone can Plaster It Purple, and there are so many fun ways to get involved. Here are some fundraising ideas to get you started!
Organise a Sponsored Purple Challenge
It could be an active outdoors challenge, a challenge at home, or a funny challenge with friends. Whatever you do, throw on your best purple fancy dress and go all out with your fundraising efforts for our young patients!
Pedal It Purple
Get on your bike this October, sport your best purple gear, and challenge yourself to one of three distances for our Plaster It Purple Cycle challenge:
- Lands' End to John O'Groats - 874 miles
- Scottish Borders to John O'Groats - 320 miles
- Glasgow to Edinburgh - 50 miles
You have from the 1st-31st October to complete your target distance, and raise as much as possible along the way to ensure that we can be there for children in hospital beyond COVID-19.
We'll provide you with a fundraising pack, t-shirt and access to our Pedal It Purple Strava Club too. Registration is £8 for Adults and FREE for children. We are also proud to be offering FREE registration to NHS Scotland employees.

"I am truly amazed having watched a whole nation in lockdown in difficult times, financial difficulty. The generosity that you continue to show us, even when you’re being challenged in your own lives is quite truly amazing and for that I’d just like to say thank you. We will never forget this.”
Mr Roddy O’Kane, Consultant Neurosurgeon at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children
