Please help us make every moment count
No one expects to outlive their child. The fear of what lies ahead, coupled with the challenges of caring for a very sick child, can put a big strain on families. Our amazing staff put their heart and soul into creating happy memories and giving our children and their families a much needed break.
To do that, we need every penny we can get and rely almost exclusively on donations from people like you. Any contribution you can make, no matter if it's big or small, will go towards providing fun and laughter for our children and a lifeline for our families.
What happens when you make a one-off donation?
Your donation will go where it's needed the most, to help make every moment count for our children and families. Here are just a few ways your donation could help:
£20 – Music session
Music is a great healer and can uplift the soul. Your donation could pay for a child to enjoy a one-to-one session with our music specialist, regardless of their abilities.
£60 – Journey for Men
Men don't often feel able to access support in the same way as women. Your donation could help give dads and other male carers a vital source of support during very difficult times.
£80 - Stay and Play
Your donation could help parents learn how to play and interact with their seriously ill child as well as giving them the opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation.
£150 - Sibling support group
Your donation could allow siblings to be the centre of attention for a while, to have fun, make some new friends, and be around people who know what it's like to have a seriously ill brother or sister.
Or You Can Make a Regular Gift
Making a regular gift is one of the best ways to support us, because it means we can plan for the future in the certain knowledge your support will be there. You can easily sign up online today..
