Weʼre raising £5,000 to revamp ward 50 (childrens transplant ward) play room

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


My child is called Clara and she is 16 months old. On 31st May she was diagnosed with kidney cancer and has since had chemotherapy, radiotherapy and one of her kidneys removed. Her other kidney is now failing and she is currently staying on Ward 50 at Leeds general infirmary. She will need a transplant but she faces quite a wait before she is able to get her much needed transplant because she has to be 2 years cancer free before she is eligible.

During that time she will spend a lot of time on the ward and will face 5 days a week of dialysis in the hospital. We have already spent nearly half of Clara's short life in hospital. Throughout her stays one of the most important things for us is to ensure that Clara has normality and one of the best ways to do that is through play.

Unfortunately due to a lack of funds the ward 50 play room is lacking the types of toys that Clara and many other children enjoy. Our aim is to raise enough funds to fully revamp the play area and also provide a small pool of funding so that the play team are able to buy items for play activities to help the children who are on this ward as and when they are needed or requested. This would have a massive effect on all the children on this ward, but especially so for Clara who enjoys sensory toys, something the ward is really lacking. Any donations would be absolutely amazing and would help us to achieve our goal!

    We are feeling extra overwhelmed this morning to see the amount we have raised already! This will make such a massive difference to all of the children on the ward! We just wanted to say thank you to everybody who has donated, we can't wait to tell the play team when they pop to see us today! 😍

    Yay! We've got our first £100! Once funds are withdrawable I'll be giving this to the play team as a petty cash float so they can provide activities catered to the children on the ward as they come in! It will make a massive difference to them and the play team staff! :) Yesterday we spent much of the day in the play room as she didn't need dialysis yesterday. Here's Clara having fun, playing with some of the toys available!
