Making hospital a happier place for children through play and advocacy

WHAT YOUR DONATION IS SPENT ON

Take a look at our Wish List of toys crafts & games which has been designed with Hospital Play Specialists to ensure children can play safely and have fun in hospital.

We aim to raise €80,000 in fundraising each year to ensure that we can recruit, train, vet and support our 500 volunteers to deliver a play service in 14 paediatric hospitals and units across Ireland.

Your donation will ensure that our volunteers can provide play materials for children and bring hours of fun to wards and playrooms while giving parents a break to get a coffee or simply relax and enjoy the games.

JOIN A CAMPAIGN

From time to time we run a campaign to fund specific programmes such as our ‘Donate a Cuppa’ campaign to provide tea/coffee vouchers for parents or our ‘Play Packs’ campaign to compile single use play packs for children in isolation wards.  See our home page if you would like to donate to any current campaign.

INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR GIFT – AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU

From time to time we run a campaign to fund specific programmes such as our ‘Donate a Cuppa’ campaign to provide tea/coffee vouchers for parents or our ‘Play Packs’ campaign to compile single use play packs for children in isolation wards.  See our home page if you would like to donate to any current campaign.

With the Government-approved tax back scheme, Children in Hospital reclaim up to 44.9% in tax from Revenue on donations of €250 or more made by individuals. All you, the donor, needs to do is sign and return a CHY3 tax back form.

The CHY3 form is valid for 5 years but this does not commit you to making any payments – it simply enables us to claim tax back on your donations for any years in which your donations total €250 or more.

This opportunity is available to all taxpayers, including the self-employed. It will cost you nothing, but the difference those extra funds will make to families in need is invaluable.

NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL

A small donation of just €5 will buy crayons and a colouring book for a sick child – these materials in a hospital setting really help the child to forget about where they are and help to normalise the situation.
