For over 20 years, The Grand Appeal has supported the provision of world-class care and facilities at Bristol Children’s Hospital. The hospital is an international, national and regional specialist centre of excellence for a range of services, including: neurosurgery, burns, cardiac, leukaemia and bone marrow transplants. Patients travel from across the South West and beyond, with each year seeing over 100,000 children receiving treatment.
The Grand Appeal funds pioneering medical equipment, as well as a wide range of activities and services. Your fundraising will help to provide arts, music and play therapists to stimulate and distract young patients. It will continue the work of our family support workers and sensory play practitioners and it will fund our free home-from-home accommodation, keeping families together whilst their child is treated in hospital.
The Grand Appeal is entirely independent from the NHS and receives no statutory funding. It is only thanks to the generosity of our donors and amazing efforts of our fundraisers that we are able to continue to support the children and their families at Bristol Children’s Hospital.
