We have been collecting donations for children’s hospitals for eleven years now. Lots of our supporters are people that come back to us year after year. You get used to seeing certain names. Jenny and her family are one of those families that have supported us from almost the start.
Jenny’s daughter is one of our volunteers and Jenny’s nine-year-old Granddaughter was one of our young volunteers that helped us bag up over 4000 pairs of pyjamas at one of our venues last year.
We can always count on them to add bags of pyjamas to every collection. So it is with the heaviest heart that we post that Jenny, the amazing head of her family, sadly passed away on May 5th...
Today is International Nurse day. A day to celebrate just how important these remarkable people are. Here at Children’s Hospital Pyjamas, we work closely with some fantastic Nurses, amongst the many other jobs they fulfil they help us to share your donations at the many hospitals on our register.
This morning we would like to introduce you to a very special man. Dave Cloud or as he was known in the Biker World “Storm”. Dave has been part of our Biker Escorts The OHANA bike group who have escorted The Hospital Pyjamas for the last 3 years to local hospitals in the Kent area. On the 29th November Dave lost his short battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at home with his family before he went he insisted his family got together his donation of Pjs for the Charity and they will be passed to me at our Kent Drop-offs later today.
On behalf of us all at Children’s Hospital Pyjamas, we will be thinking of you today Dave “ Ride high Dave” 💛
Please do not send any more pyjamas. The Amazon wish list is closed and so are all our collection points. Our volunteers are busy sorting and delivering your donations.
We have decided to wait to give a final total for this year as the pyjamas keep coming. So please bear with us.
THANK YOU to every single person that follows us on here. If you did not manage to purchase PJs but shared our posts this is just as important. Now we are an official charity we will be organising fundraising events during the year so keep an eye on the page.
The hospital drop off pics have already started to be posted on here and we will make sure we do a post for each one.
Cannot wait to share our final total with you all! You can check out our images from our hosp...
This team were part of our lives for the whole 26 months my daughter was on treatment. They make families lives easier by coming to your home to administer medicines, take blood and offering some treatments that you would ordinarily have to go to the hospital for. The support they offer goes a lot further than the treatments they give.
CHAH is also on our list for donations this year as they have been in past years...
We are a UK based charity (no.1185739), who collect donations of brand new pyjamas, from the public, which we then donate to Hospitals, Hospice’s, School Hospital Teams and Women’s refuges up and down the country. These are then given to poorly or less fortunate children who are inpatients.
