We’re delighted to let you know that we’ve been chosen to take part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge meaning every donation made this week (Tuesday 27 November - Tuesday 4 December) will be matched pound-for-pound.

It’s not often you get something for nothing, so please make your donation go further for our sick kids – kids like Poppy.

Diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour aged just 14-months-old, Poppy (now 15) has been one of our patients for most of her life. Poppy has been through five brain surgeries, two years of chemotherapy, six weeks of daily radiotherapy, 13 blood transfusions, five platelet transfusions and over 50 MRI scans.

Mum, Lisa, said: “Being in hospital continues to be a huge and frightening challenge for Poppy. But our years have been punctuated by some wonderful moments of magic that will stay with us forever, including regular visits from artists and performers who really helped Poppy find her smile. I know the difference moments of magic have made to Poppy during some really tough and upsetting times. Seeing her smile and join in with songs, jokes and games has meant the world to us.”

Please donate today and help other children like Poppy to smile. Please note, you will be taken to the Big Give website to complete your donation.
