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:

  • Siobhan’s Trust, which feeds and supports internally displaced refugees across Ukraine
  • Action Cerebral Palsy, which spreads awareness of cerebral palsy and the issues facing children and young people living with cerebral palsies and their families
  • ABC to Read, who support hundreds of children a year who are struggling to read by working with them in primary schools across Berkshire
  • Alzheimer’s Research UK, the UK’s leading dementia and Alzheimer’s disease research charity
  • Windsor Food Share, who provide non-perishable foods weekly as well as toiletries and cleaning products to any local household who needs it.

Rides and amusements:

  • Mini train
  • Swing boats
  • Bouncy castle
  • Inflatable assault course
  • Ocean Express Plus Bus
