So who is involved? So far a number of schools have already confirmed their support and participation, all of which are committed to raising funds for Doncaster Cancer charity “The Eve Merton Dreams Trust”. The charity uses the funds raised to support Doncaster Cancer sufferers by providing a dream or granting a wish to bring a smile for both patient and family.

They need your support - The teachers and their schools will be challenged to raise the maximum amount possible before facing the legends.
All their efforts will raise money for Doncaster people and we encourage all involved to turn up in force to cheer on their teacher.
