Delivering Christmas Smiles

Following the phenomenal response to our Gift Drive we’ve had a wonderful time delivering gifts to 1,200 children in hospital and over 200 more children isolating at home.

We’ve had a fabulous weekend (5 & 6 December) delivering our Smile Hampers to seriously ill children and teenagers under the care of our hospital partners and who are currently shielding at home.  A fleet of black cabs from the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers’ Charity Trust coupled with a team of our entertainers took on Santa’s duties to deliver our hampers full of festive fun and aimed at lifting children’s spirits.   Thank you to everyone who shared their photos and stories with us.  We are so pleased the hampers made you smile.  Our gift deliveries will continue right up until Christmas Eve to more than 1,200 children who will remain in hospital over the festive period..

We would like to make a special thank you to all those individuals and companies who have so generously supported our gift drive this year including; Spinmaster, Alligator Books, The Paper Box, Hunter Price, Hamabeads, Cheatwell Games, Staedtler, Swizzels, Bastion, Hasbro, Amaze Marketing, Character Options Ltd, Ravensburger, SEGA, The Fence Club, Aurora World Ltd, Alphabet Pie, OTL Brands, Craft Buddy, Learning Resources Ltd, Rainbow Designs, Moonpig, Nutty Putty, Skinny Dip, The Entertainer, Little Gold Collection, Egg Nogg, Gold Brothers, Mad Science & Pass the Parcel.

The children have received the most amazing gifts and the impact of your support is evident in the many photos and messages of thanks we have received.

“Thank you so very much for the hampers.  The kids absolutely love them.  Laura singing ‘Let it Go’ on the doorstep was amazing and put a smile on all our faces especially when it has been a challenging time and my son undergoing treatment in the midst of it all.”
