Christmas should be a joyful time for every child. But sadly, this Christmas will be the exact opposite for many seriously ill children – unless we can help.
Across the UK, 100,00 children will spend the festive period in hospital or a hospice which can be scary and traumatic. Aila spent most of her first year, including her first Christmas in hospital. Fortunately, the cancer ward that Aila was in was well staffed with Health Play Specialists, like Claire, and resources from Starlight, but only 30% of hospitals have a budget for play.
It’s not too late for you to bring play to the children who need it most this Christmas. So please, donate today and GIVE THE GIFT OF PLAY THIS CHRISTMAS.
