Toy appeal: Give a smile to sick children this Christmas!


Amelia’s Rainbow 2018 Toy Appeal 

**Give a smile to sick children this Christmas!**

We love our annual Toy Appeal where we hand deliver presents to children in Poole Hospital on Christmas Day and Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust on Boxing Day.

For the third year running we will be visiting our families that we support across Dorset and delivering tailor made Santa sacks of presents to our children who are living with any life-limiting, serious, chronic and terminal illnesses.

We will also be giving presents to the siblings of the children that we support. We find as a charity that the siblings also have a very challenging time and are normally heavily involved with the care and support of our poorly children, so it is just as important that we create happiness for them!

Please can you help Amelia’s Rainbow by buying some toys and dropping them to one of our official collection points listed below before 10th December 2018?

We are again asking for gifts of new toys for all ages, but particularly sensory gifts as these are suitable for so many of the children that we support.

Chantel (Amelia’s Mum) said: 
“Christmas can be a very hard time of year for many people, especially for children and families with serious illnesses or those who have lost a child. Having experienced Christmas at both of these times we understand it can be a time when parents try and make it magical even when they may be sad inside.”

So, please drop off your new toys with any of the locations below, until Monday 10th December 2018.
