Evelina London is your children’s hospital. We’re in the heart of Lambeth and Southwark, but also care for children from as far afield as Kent, Surrey, Sussex and beyond. Every year, we care for more than 95,000 children and young people in hospital and in the community.
Donations from kind supporters have been invaluable to our development as one of the UK’s leading hospitals. But more sick children need our help. In the last 15 years, the number of children we care for has more than doubled.
This Christmas, patients who are too sick to be at home will still be on our wards, and our community sites will be busy with children coming in for their treatment. And we want to make sure every child in our care receives a present that brings them joy and comfort.
The money donated through Christmas Smiles will go to the play specialists fund at Evelina London, which is restricted towards purchasing toys, games, arts & crafts and other items needed by our brilliant play specialists at Christmas and throughout the year.
All the items on Christmas Smiles have been chosen by play specialists as gifts they would like to buy for the wards or to give the children as presents.
Your donations help us provide the best possible care at Evelina London and ensure we can do even more to support sick children and their families.
