At Action for Sick Children we’ve believed in the magical power of play for over 50 years. By providing toys as a welcome distraction during an otherwise dull and unsettling hospital stay, play has the power. The power to aid recovery, drastically increase the child’s ability to cope in an unfamiliar environment, and even provide them with a deeper understanding of their treatment and illness. Just like you, at Action for Sick Children we believe that all sick children should have access to age appropriate play during their hospital stay. Children are our future, and we need you to help us take care of them.  

In 2018, we want to provide toys and play equipment to 10 children's wards across the UK. Will you help us raise five thousand fivers to make it happen?
