For over 22 years, The Grand Appeal has supported world-class care and facilities at Bristol Children’s Hospital. As an international, national and regional specialist centre of excellence for a range of services including neurosurgery, burns, cardiac, leukaemia and bone marrow transplants, over 100,000 patients are treated at the hospital each year. These patients come from across the South West, South Wales, and beyond. Thanks to the support of Grand Appeal fundraisers, it is now home to the south of England’s only 3T MRI scanner and inter-operative scanning suite.

In addition to funding life-saving medical equipment, The Grand Appeal also provides emotional and pastoral care to patients and their families. Your fundraising will go towards providing Grand Appeal Music Therapists, Family Support Workers as well as Sensory Play Practitioners. Donations will also enable us to continue to fund nearby family accommodation meaning parents can have a private space to stay just moments away from their sick child.

Your fundraising is paramount in enabling the Grand Appeal to continue supporting Bristol Children’s Hospital. With your help, we can continue to fund life-saving medical equipment, art projects, patient activities, and family accommodation units, and much more.

The Grand Appeal is entirely independent from the NHS and receives no statutory funding and it is only thanks to the generosity of our donors and fundraisers that we are able to continue a wide programme of investment in the Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Help us save lives, provide the best possible patient care and keep families together by running the Bath Half Marathon 2018 for The Grand Appeal. To join #TeamGrandAppeal today contact Amber, our Events Fundraiser on 0117 927 3888 or email Amber@grandappeal.org.uk
