Making a Difference: Chelsea Children's Hospital Charity

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital holds a special place in our hearts.  
It was there that our second-born came to the world; 
we have lots of happy memories and are eternally grateful 
to the doctors and staff for their care. 

Despite having my baby there, I had absolutely no idea
that based within Chelsea & Westminster Hospital 
is the Chelsea Children's Hospital
one of three specialist children's hospitals in London 
and one of the biggest providers of children's medicine in the capital

Three decades ago, a team of doctors founded 
the Chelsea Children's Hospital Charity
in order to raise money for much needed equipment 
and services which would otherwise not be available.

The charity's work is of immense importance 
for poorly children and their families: 
thanks to its efforts they managed to acquire
the first children's surgical robot in the UK named Pluto,  
infrared vein finders and much needed foldable overnight beds 
for the children's parents.

On a human level, the charity offers glimpses of hope 
to the families and children themselves, 
as we were told by a parent who had their child there. 
The charity organises Christmas parties, 
hands out emergency toiletry packs for parents 
to get them through the first night 
and offers support and a smile when things are tough.

How Can I Help?
The Chelsea Children's Hospital Charity
has teamed up with Merci Maman,
who donate 10p from every sale and provide gifts for the mums on the ward,
with Thomas's School and Fulham Cricket Club
as well as with the local community
which help them to raise money.

You can help this amazing charity
either by volunteering,
fundraising or simply donating.

A little always goes a long way.

Chelsea Children's Hospital Charity is based at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, 369 Fulham Road, London SW10 9NH

Thank you to the Charity and Merci Maman 
for inviting me to the brunch 
and for the ward tour.
