We Help children in and around Bristol to enjoy a better childhood

Story

The Bristol Children's Charity was born to help disadvantaged children.  Their first venture was to collect toys at Christmas for half a dozen local children’s homes. This brought them in touch with the Lord Mayor of the day – a link with the city’s first citizen they retain and cherish. It made the television news, and, with a sell-out Christmas lunch, the charity was launched. In the early 70’s the premature baby unit at Southmead Hospital was desperately seeking a special piece of equipment to give a young born the chance of life, for which Bristol Children's Charity raised the £10,000 needed. Since then they have helped thousands of youngsters, sometimes with equipment, sometimes with the end money to round off someone else’s fundraising. From the outset Bristol Children's Charity agreed every penny raised would go towards the cause, and that the committee would meet all the other running costs out of their own pockets. Although modified over the years as they grew, that remains a firm point of principle. Bristol Children's Charity is comprised of unpaid volunteers doing our best for unfortunate children, and that will never change.
