Help us bring some festive cheer to patients in the children’s ward at UCLH hospital, and the staff looking after them, this holiday season. 

Our donate a gift campaign includes two options of either donating a voucher online, or buying a book from Waterstones. Other options to aid fundraising can be seen below.

Your support helps ensure that everyone in the hospital on Christmas Day has a present to open and that the staff working on shift over the holiday season, have a festive treat to enjoy.

As ever, thank you for your support. 

Donate a voucher

As part of our annual Donate a Gift campaign, you can gift £10 online to buy one gift for a child in the hospital. Sadly, this is the only gift for some children this year.

This year we are encouraging businesses and individuals to donate £10 to provide one gift to a young patient. There are 77 in-patient beds for children this year, so to gift each young patient on Christmas Day and in patients in the run-up to Christmas, the target is £1500.

Any funds raised over our target will support our wider project to replenish toys and play equipment throughout outpatient and ambulatory care paediatric areas.
