About the campaign

To mark the switch on of one the UK’s most iconic landmarks, we’re powering on the Piccadilly Lights through the gift of colour!

The Piccadilly Lights have been switched off since January and we need your help to power them back on this autumn. Every colour sponsored will help build a global colour patchwork on the big screen, and help Barnardo's continue to transform children’s lives across the UK.

Be part of London’s digital history and sponsor a colour today. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on the switch on and watch your contribution come to life.

Barnardo’s works with more than a quarter of a million children, young people, parents and carers each year, supporting them through a range of significant – often unimaginable – challenges. They work to bring out the best in each and every one of them.

How your donation makes a difference:

  • £10 helps pay travel costs so a young person can get to a job interview and help build themselves a better future.
  • £25 helps pay for a case worker to give life-changing support and safety advice to young victims of sexual exploitation.
  • £35 pays for a small group of young carers to go on an outing together and take a crucial break from caring.

By getting involved, you can light up the lives of vulnerable children. Sponsor a colour and make a donation today. Find out more about how Barnardo’s helps.
