    £1 stocking filler! A small contibution to the Christmas presents guaranteed for every child at Alder Hey over the Christmas period. A gift card will not be sent out for this virtual gift.

    £5 the gift of music! Just £5 bring music to the bedside of our young patients through fun, child-led sessions to help develop confidence, self-esteem and provide distraction from pain and anxiety. It also helps fund concerts in our state-of-the-art Performance Space and allows us to broadcast them to every child’s bedroom TV!

    £10 the joy of play! £10 contributes to our Play Service, facilitating therapeutic play across all patient areas and the equipment and materials needed to make hospital life brighter. Physical play supports well-being and compliments physiotherapy as well as helping to reduce infection. Crafts and creative play can help children to express their feelings and provide distraction. Help us in our commitment to ensuring that our patients have the same childhood opportunities as other healthy children.

    £25 makes mealtimes fun! £25 supports our innovative ward chef programme, delivering fun menus packed with nutritional meals to help our young patients stay healthy and recover in hospital. Meals and snacks are tailored to the needs and tastes of each child and can support young patients living with cancer to take on the energy they need to get stronger. As families come together to enjoy Christmas dinner, we make sure that children spending Christmas with us get to celebrate as an Alder Hey family too.

    £50 Building a home for children's wellbeing! £50 helps us to reach our £3m target to improve mental health services for children and young people. Research has identified that 7 in 10 children with a mental health condition do not get the support they need early enough, and the pandemic has increased demand for our mental health and community services. Your donation will help create a special home for these services alongside our hospital, with the unique needs of our young patients at its heart.
