What You Do For Us

With your donations we are able to provide support for...


As a charity we support numerous research projects into childhood diseases and their cures. Research, conducted here at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, has in the last year helped us to diagnose brain tumours in children sooner.


Charity money is used to pay for state-of-the-art equipment to better treat our children. Our recently purchased ECMO Machine acts as a mechanical heart and helps keep children with complex heart conditions in a stable condition whilst they build up their strength.

Patient Experience

Our patients deserve a childhood whilst they are with us. Many of our donations go towards specialist toys, arts & craft materials, giggle doctors and therapy sessions for our children.


You may have seen our Children’s Cancer Centre Appeal which is the 3rd large scale refurbishment of a unit that the charity has undertaken in the last 5 years. The impact of donations from these campaigns is that whole treatment rooms, parents rooms and wards are transformed into world class facilities!
