Thank you for working wonders for sick kids in hospital.

Your donation will make a significant difference to the spirit and morale of children during treatment and recovery and provide them with a sense of normality and FUN!

Donated toys and resources will be used for birthday presents, significant milestones, special events such as Christmas, and to stock play spaces in waiting rooms.

Every donation is truly valued and appreciated and we couldn’t do it without your support!
