Our Recipient List can be found on the map below!
Our sewing team now has just under 300 people in it! We have been amazed by the support that people are offering.
Thank you for the post shares it has really helped!!
Can we ask another favour please. We need 40,000 hearts to start with (20,000 pairs). We anticipate that this will cover our collection for this year. This means we need to purchase an incredible amount of fabric.
So we are asking if you have any spare fabric or wish to contribute to us purchasing fabric please send us a PM. We are after cotton or polycotton fabric and it has to be new (unused).[Read more…]
Are you ready?
With your help, we managed to donate to 90 establishments this year. Our grand total is beyond what we thought we could accomplish.
Despite going through a global pandemic we managed to collect and distribute more pyjamas than we did last year.
Last year we collected 12,202 pairs pyjamas. We are extremely proud of everyone that has been involved, everyone that has donated and helped us. We are already making plans for changes next year and how we move forward with our charity.
We would like to thank you all for helping us to create 15,636 smiles. Yes, we collected a humongous 15,636 pairs of pyjamas!! The pictures are from our drop-offs which for obvious reasons had to be different this year. We hope you like them!
Thank you again for helping us to have another successful year of giving. Your support has been amazing and we are thankful.

I know long but please bear with me.
Our 2020 appeal has now ended.
We have completed our 11th year of appeals. The team are busy counting, packing and delivering your donations. After what has been an extremely difficult year we assumed donations would be a low amount. We chose not to post too much asking for donations as we did not want anyone to feel guilty for not being able to help us this year.
When I spoke to the establishments on our register I explained that things may be different but as always the team would do our best to get the donations in. We normally hand over what we call a ‘full collection’ to everyone on our register. This works out to be 4 pairs of pyjamas in each size (2 girls and 2 boys) it comes to just under 100 pairs of pyjamas. What normally happens is that we end up donating so much more than this and the amount varies depending on the space each establishment has to store the donations. These donations are given out at Christmas but are then used throughout the year.
For children in hospital who are brought in, in emergencies, accidents where clothes have been cut off, children brought in through social services, bereaved children and the list goes on. Despite this year being a tough year, your donations have flown in. We have been amazed at the support we have received. It has been truly humbling watching the number of donations rise. We decided to hand over just a ‘full collection’ to each establishment so that we could spread your love even further. What has in fact happened is we have still been able to do both.
Handing over mass amounts and Increasing from 62 establishments last year to over 80 this year.
Thank you so much for your support.
We appreciate every single one of you. Thank you for the donations and the post likes and shares. It has all helped us to have yet another successful appeal
Thank you to all our collection points who have collected and helped us bring in your donations. To all our schools, nurseries, clubs and businesses who have joined our CHP family and held various events to get our donations in. We thank you. Please also help me thank my amazing team. 53 Coordinators and volunteers manage your donations (this does not include the staff at all our collection points).
Despite having families and full-time jobs they have still found the time to help us achieve what we have. Over half of the team have experience having had a child fight a life-threatening illness. For some of my team, their children are still fighting. Through the ups, downs and heartache for different members of the team, they have managed to pull together for the last few weeks and get the appeal to this point. Without this amazing team, there would be no Children’s Hospital Pyjamas. Thank you team CHP, 1000’s of children will smile because of your efforts and commitment to the charity. I really do have the dream team
Thank you again for all your support. We will be back to share pictures of our drop offs, our grand total of pyjamas donated and a final list of everyone that has benefited because of your love.
One of our biggest thank you’s goes to St Mildred’s Parish Church.
St Mildreds is our collection point in Croydon. They have been responsible for taking in your donations that came in through the Croydon Wish list.
As well as being a collection point and having people pop in to leave donations for us. This year the charity as a whole will be donating to over 80 different establishments. The donations that came in through St Mildreds make up collections for over 30 of those establishments.
Without their help, we are not sure what we would do in South London. Before Covid, we collected and packed at this location. The staff are always super helpful and very accommodating of the 1000’s of parcels that come through their doors. When looking out for your community is actually put in to practice. We thank St Mildreds for helping us each year and for being massive support to the work we do getting the donations in and out to all the children. We truly appreciate your support St Mildreds #spreadinglovethroughcomfort
