Host your own event for Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Each year, hundreds of schools, childcare centres, workplaces and community groups band together and host their own event in support of Talk Like a Pirate Day. You can dress up, host pirate themed morning teas, or even use one of our pirate lesson plans. 

The opportunities are endless! All funds raised go towards Childhood Cancer Support and providing accommodation, transport and support services to regional families facing childhood cancer. 

Talk Like a Pirate Day on the 19th September is nationally recognised as the major fundraiser for Childhood Cancer Support. Host your event any time in September during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
