Bring Christmas cheer to critically ill children

Christmas is a magical time of year, a time for giving and sharing special moments with those you love.

No one expects to spend their Christmas in hospital. But sadly this will be the reality for many children and their families this year.

Whatever you can donate today will help children in hospital get the care they deserve and families the support they need.

Please donate to our Christmas appeal

Your donations help children like Louis

Louis spent his first-ever Christmas in hospital after being diagnosed with a heart condition.

Miles from home, his family were given a place to stay in our charity accommodation while they waited to see if their baby boy would make it through.

“As the countdown to Christmas began, it felt surreal to be so far from our home in Cornwall. It’s family and friends you lean on during times like this, but they were three hours away.”

Jodie, Louis’ mum

How you can support sick children

There are many ways you can help Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit this Christmas.

Show off your best festive fancy dress in Wallace & Gromit’s BIG Christmas Dress Up, hold your very own Christmas light display or simply make a donation.

Whatever you decide to do, your fundraising will help save lives, not just at Christmas but all year round.
