Learn about the generous National Lottery award granted to Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity during the Covid-19 crisis

There are few moments in life as worrying as your child being admitted to hospital.

For many families, their lives are turned upside down as they face an unknown journey ahead.

Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity does all that it can during these challenging circumstances to ensure that families receive the help that they need, whether that's emotional, practical or financial support.

We would like to share our heartfelt thanks with the National Lottery Community Fund Scotland for their generous National Lottery award of £9,733, to support our families through their hospital journeys during these difficult times.

“In these uncertain times our priority is to ensure that National Lottery money continues to flow to charities, voluntary sector organisations and grassroots groups. I would like to congratulate Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity on their award, theirs is an important project which showcases the vital work that’s being done in communities across the country.”

Neil Ritch, Director, The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland

This generous funding will help Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity fund emergency grants to over families' basic costs for food, laundry and clothing; care packs for those in temporary accommodation close to the hospital; and will also provide iPads to keep families connected with their children in hospital.

We are relying entirely on donations and fundraising to continue being there beyond COVID for our young patients and their families. To make a one-off or monthly gift to be there with us, please click the link below.
