Get Involved

If you are organising a fundraising event, please let us know and we will publicise it on social media. We can also email you sponsor forms and/or send you leaflets about what we do too. If you would like to set up an online donation page for your event, we are registered on BT MyDonate. This means that you don’t need to collect any money yourself, and gift aid is automatically claimed if the person donating online ticks the gift aid box.

For Schools

We are very grateful to all the schools that support us, whether it be by holding non uniform days, cake sales or sponsored walks. We can come in to your school to work with classes, or to lead assemblies, all free of charge. These sessions aim to show children where the money raised goes and how it helps local children. Sessions are practical and are done very sensitively and take in to account the age of the children and specific needs of the class or school.

Where does my money go?

Harry’s Hampers

The hampers contain a few bits and pieces that the family might find useful in the first few days in hospital, things that in the rush and worry might have been left at home or not thought about. Items to be included in the hamper are: a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, a flannel, a bottle of water, biscuits and a notebook and pencils/pens.

Harry’s Hugs

We arrange and pay for a patchwork quilt or memory bear to be made from the favourite clothes of a child if they sadly pass away from cancer, something their loved ones can hug and remember.

Harry’s Holidays

When children are having a particularly difficult time during treatment or they are given a terminal diagnosis, we would like to offer local families the opportunity to spend time together away from the family home.

Family Fun

We provide vouchers for local restaurants and places to visit so children can spend time with those they love. We also give children a gift voucher for a local toy shop so they can buy a toy to pass the time in hospital. Treats like this often stop due to the  financial pressures families often face if one parent stops work to care for the poorly child.

Perfect Pillows

When a child begins to lose their hair from chemo we will give them a soft fleece pillowcase or blanket, which feels much softer on a delicate bare head than normal pillowcases.

We have some lovely volunteers
who kindly make these for us.

Supershoes UK

We pay for children to have a pair of Supershoes if they would like some, and have linked with this UK charity to make sure this happens!

Mini Projects…

We give each family with a child on treatment a gift card for the cafe in the hospital so that they can buy snacks and refreshments.

We buy books, games, toys and equipment for the children’s oncology ward in Telford.

We support children whenever and however possible, and so we grant ‘wishes’ as requested by staff at The Princess Royal Hospital for individual children when we can.

Beads of Courage

We fund the Beads of Courage programme at The Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.
