From a kids’ fun run in pyjamas to world champions inspiring the community, there’s sure to be something that sparks an idea in our roundup of active events. By the end of this term, most PTAs are happy to take a well-deserved break. For those who aren’t ready to stop, read our ideas on how to fundraise during the long holidays.
