Royal Manchester Children's Hospital Charity raises funds to ensure continued excellence in treatment, care and research at the hospital - improving the lives of thousands of children each year across the North West and beyond.

The support of the Charity means that the hospital can provide additional resources that make life easier for patients and their families who use the hospital.

The Charity has three main areas of work:

  • to support research projects to improve our understanding of children's illnesses
  • to help to create an environment that's more child-friendly
  • to provide state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosis and treatment.

If you want to help the toy fund at the hospital this Christmas you can simply text RMCH00 £5 or £10 to 70070.
