We are a UK-based charity (registration number 1185739), which collects donations of brand new pyjamas, from the public, which we then donate to hospitals, hospices and women’s refuges across the UK. These are then given to poorly or less fortunate children who are inpatients.

About Children’s Hospital Pyjamas

Why We Started

Children’s Hospital Pyjamas started in November 2010 when the founder’s daughter was an in-patient in the hospital. She received a brand new scooter that had been gifted to the hospital from another family of a poorly child.

Our founder decided, she too needed to give back and when they were discharged from the hospital, she asked friends and family to donate brand-new toys so she could gift them to her local hospital. After three years of donating toys, a switch was made to donating pyjamas, as a far more practical option. Year after year, the collection has grown and so has the team. In celebration of our tenth collection, we registered as a charity.
