      We want you to feel safe when donating to The Children’s Hospital Charity, and are proud that we, and our supporters, raise vitals funds in many different ways.

      However, there are some fundraising activities that we do not take part in.

      The Children’s Hospital Charity does not carry out any form of door-to-door fundraising, so please be cautious about those visiting you at your home and asking for donations on our behalf.

      All our registered fundraisers have access to a signed letter confirming their activities for us.

      A genuine fundraiser should be happy to answer questions and explain more about the work we do.

      If you are in any doubt, you can always give the Charity a quick call to verify the information.

      If you have concerns about the fundraising you have encountered, there are several ways you can take action. You can contact the Fundraising Regulator, report it to Action Fraud, or contact the police.

      Your donations really do make a huge difference, so we hope this information will help you feel confident when supporting us.
