Eton Action Fair, 11am-4pm, Saturday 14 September 2024

The Eton Action Fair is Eton Action’s biggest charity fundraiser event of the year!

Eton Action transforms Eton College’s grounds into a community fair every year to fundraise for five chosen charities. Games, stalls and performances are organised by the students and staff of Eton College to raise money for charities supported by Eton Action (an independent charity conceived of and founded by Etonians to promote charitable activity and social responsibility). In addition to this, many outside organisations, mainly charitable foundations, are invited to arrange stalls and raise funds for their own causes. Now in its 50th year, the fair draws thousands of visitors from Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead, as well as parents and friends of Etonians, and raises large sums of money for a wide range of charitable causes.​ The income from all these events is pooled and divided between charitable foundations and projects chosen by the committee and voted on by every boy in the school. 

For the academic year 2023/24, Eton Action raised funds for:

  • Slough Refugee Support supports 150+ refugees and asylum seekers in Slough and the Thames Valley each year.
  • Rainbow Trust cares for the families of children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
  • Campaign Against Living Miserably, a mental health charity that seeks to reduce the number of suicides amongst young people.
  • BEAT, the UK’s eating disorder charity. They aim to end the pain the suffering caused by eating disorders.
  • Restart Africa works to save abused, abandoned and desperate children in Kenya. They work to offer street children from Gilgil a haven from drugs, violence and homelessness.
