Donating at Christmas
Thank you for choosing to support Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity this Christmas - your support matters now more than ever.
Unfortunately due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and strict infection control procedures at the children's hospital, we will be unable to accept donations of toys and gifts this year.
Instead, please consider supporting in one of the many ways below to ensure that we can still make Christmas magical for seriously ill children in hospital, their families, and the NHS heroes caring for them.
With your financial donations, fundraising and online shop purchases, we can fund an exciting calendar of Christmas activities, games and virtual events for our young patients to enjoy safely.
Your generous support will also ensure that we can treat all of the babies, children and young people in hospital during the festive season with extra special Christmas gifts and surprises through our Play Programme.
