This December, the John Hunter Children’s Hospital aims to create a festive wonderland within its wards and corridors, offering crucial moments of distraction and joy to our young patients and their families.

From enchanting Christmas craft activities to visits from special guests, we're dedicated to brightening every young face this festive season.

Your support will mean every child staying at The John Hunter Children’s Hospital will receive a present on Christmas morning. All remaining items will be given to sick kids throughout 2024.

Below is a list of gift ideas we can currently accept. These items have been selected as they are equal in size and value.

Many children will be unwell and limited to their beds or wards during this time. Items they can play with straight away from their beds are better than those which would stay in the box a bit longer or take up a lot of room.

Please note all items must be new and within its original packaging. Thank you so much for your support.
