Roald Dahl is one of the world’s best-loved authors and we are delighted to be working with Mrs Felicity Dahl and Sir Quentin Blake to bring the magic of Roald Dahl to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Together we are planning to create a series of beautiful stained glass windows in the entrance to Waterfall House, our Children’s Cancer and Rare Diseases Centre.

Renowned for having illustrated Roald Dahl’s books, Sir Quentin has generously donated his original illustrations to the hospital – the first-time Sir Quentin’s work has ever been produced in stained-glass. The windows will feature characters out of Dahl’s books that every child and adult will instantly recognise, including The BFG, The Enormous Crocodile, and The Giraffe the Pelly And Me.

Our hope is to inspire young patients to read and enjoy literature, generate conversations, distract from difficult and upsetting situations and provide a stimulus for learning and self-expression, but we need your help to make our windows a reality.

It’s a £234,000 project, and we have already received some generous donations, but we now need the public to help us to get over the line.

If you are interested in finding out more about this exceptional opportunity, to bring a wonderful work of art to our children, please contact Fundraising Team on 0121 333 8506 or you can make a donation online now. Alternatively, learn more about our art in hospital here.
