Be a good egg this Easter

You can bring a smile to patients this Easter by sending them a message. 

Some of our children in hospital can't eat chocolate because of a restricted diet or they are fed through a tube. Instead of buying Easter eggs consider giving a donation and together we could help fund a bigger waiting room in the Emergency Department with toys to play with. 

Ways you can help:

We really appreciate the generosity of people at Easter time and all those yummy eggs! But sometimes we get so much chocolate we think we might pop! Some children are unable to join in with the chocolate eating because of restricted diets, whereas others are nil by mouth because of treatment and surgery.

So this year, we’re asking people to consider an alternative donation:

Don’t worry though, the children staying in the hospital over Easter won’t be missing out on chocolate treats. We already have enough donations offered by supporters to ensure we have an Easter egg for every child who is able to eat one. This includes the hundreds of eggs we get on Easter Sunday for the Easter Egg Run, which will be going ahead as normal.

Still really want to give a chocolate egg? We will still accept donations of Easter eggs, but due to the number received, we cannot guarantee it will be given to a patient. Any surplus eggs will be sold and profits used to help support services in other ways.
