Dinosaur Day

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in Dinosaur Day 2018! We had a roar-some day celebrating and we hope you had too.

Make sure you save the date and join us once again next year and if you raised money following your Dinosaur Day, there are a couple of ways you can pay in what you have raised:

  • Post a cheque, made payable to "Contact" to Fundraising, Contact, 209-211 City Road, London, EC1V 1JN. Please reference 'Dinosaur Day 2018', your full name and address when posting the cheque.
  • Pay online through our website using the Donate to Us page. Follow the process to donate and when you come to the box marked Additional comments/Reason for this donation please include here 'Dinosaur Day 2018'.

Join us for Dinosaur Day 2019!

Dinosaurs may be extinct, but the challenges families with disabled children face aren't.

Dinosaur Day is Contact's annual fundraising day, taking place next year on 19 June 2019. Getting involved is simple: hold a fundraising day on or around 19 June to raise funds for Contact.

You could hold a cake sale with a prehistoric or Dinosaur theme, organise a Dinosaur dress down day at school, or sponsor your boss to wear a Dinosaur mask for the day, and donate the funds raised!

The inspiration behind Dinosaur Day

Cameron Mathieson was a boy who had both Cystic Fibrosis and Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy and sadly passed away when he was five years old after spending 3 of those years in hospital. He loved dinosaurs - or as he called them, Dowsers - and his favourite Dowser was a green triceratops called Troy.

Contact supports families like the Mathieson's to ensure that they can make every moment count, whatever the disability, and live life to the fullest extent they can. With your help we can support more families, and guide them through the challenges they face every day.
