Our Christmas Appeal

Our Christmas Appeal

Together this Christmas is where we want families to be.

Together this Christmas, we can make a difference to families with a seriously ill child in hospital.

This year we are all grateful for the times that we can be together with loved ones. Families with a seriously ill child in hospital might not be at home for Christmas, but they can still be together in our ‘Homes from Home’.

Join us this Christmas and raise vital funds to keep our ‘Homes from Home’ open, so that we can keep families together.

How you can make a difference to a family this Christmas


Your generous donations ensure families can have somewhere to stay and someone to talk to when they really need it.

Gift an Hour

Your workplace could get involved by encouraging employees to gift an hour of their pay.

Families we have supported over Christmas

“The most important thing was being close to Esther, which is what The Sick Children’s Trust made possible. Nothing was ever 100% on a day to day basis, we didn’t know what might or could happen each day, it was incredibly worrying and the charity’s ‘Homes from Home’ helped ease that.”

Charlotte Herbert, Esther’s Mum

“No parent thinks their child is going to end up in hospital and can imagine not being there for them which is why I’d encourage everyone to support The Sick Children’s Trust. Especially at a time like now when they need as much help as possible.”

Leanne Curry, Adam’s Mum
