The Big Christmas Donation

We are dedicated to "the alex Children's Hospital" advent calendar appeal every year. This year, things have to be done a bit differently to respect social distancing and government guidance. Rather than collect calendars from our clients in person, the team are collecting donations that will be used to order in Advent calendars safely. We need to buy at least 100 advent calendars, so every child has one.

Any extra money raised will be use to help the Play Team make hospital a happier place for kids. For Example, donations will be used to provide things like sensory toys/equipment, arts and craft packs, DVDs, DVD players, and birthday gifts for kids throughout the year. Every year you help make this possible and although things are crazy right now, I hope you will be able to help us once again.

The Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital in Brighton is dedicated to providing the highest quality of medical and nursing care for children and young people. It is a leading healthcare centre for children, providing state-of-the-art facilities in a comfortable, welcoming, safe and secure environment.

We have set up a dedicated fundraising page so you can donate.
