About Us

Here at The Grand Appeal, the official Bristol Children’s Hospital charity, we are committed to saving lives and supporting families at the children’s hospital.


We created Cots for Tots in 2010 to support and raise money for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol.

Together, we have one vision for the future: to ensure every sick child and baby from across the South West has access to the very best care, 365 days a year.

Bristol Children’s Hospital

Bristol Children’s Hospital is a very special place and we are proud to be its dedicated charity.

It cares for over 100,000 patients each year from across the South West and South Wales, covering the single largest geographic area of any children’s hospital in England.

Babies, children, and young adults with highly complex medical conditions – from rare genetic disorders, neurological conditions, and congenital heart disease to traumatic injuries, cancer, and kidney disease – are cared for around the clock by extraordinary staff.

It’s only with your help we can be there for these patients when they need it most.
