My Story

Cycling from London to Paris - over 300 miles, in 4 days for Bristol Children's Hospital 'Grand Appeal' - I'll definitely be working up a sweat for this one!

All funds will help support sick and injured babies and children receiving treatment in Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit from across the South West of England and beyond. 

Here are some examples of the impact your donations could have.

·         £50 could provide a music therapy session for a premature baby, helping to calm and improve their breathing. ‘Darla was in hospital until she was nine months old. Usually, she would lie quite still but music therapy encouraged her to move her muscles and focus on the lights and sounds.’ Tina, Cheltenham

·         £70 could buy toys, games, books and magazines to distract and entertain children of all ages. 'Our hospital stays would be 10 times worse without the toys, DVDs and oncology playroom, all funded by The Grand Appeal.' Victoria, Bristol

·         £110 could pay for the video messaging service V-create for a week, allowing hospital staff to send video updates of babies to parents when they have to leave their bedside. Mum Katie was so pleased to receive regular video and photo updates of her baby boy, it meant the world to her when she had to leave Finley’s side.

·         £200 Could support the running of our family accommodation house for a week, providing somewhere comfortable to stay for parents, minutes from their child's bedside.  ‘We were scared confused and tired, having someone provide clean and quiet accommodation was the kindest thing. we also met other families going through the same thing who really understood what we were going through.’ Joe, Bristol

·         £1,500 could pay for a family support practitioner for one month, providing a vital emotional and practical help to parents, grandparents and siblings to enable them to cope more easily with having a very sick child. 'You helped us during our most stressful time in our life; on one side our baby was fighting for his life and during all the financial issues we had, you were an angel who helped and helped us.’ Hannah, Cornwall

Wish me luck and many thanks for donating...!
