We bring more than medicine to seriously ill children in hospital.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Ahead of the opening of the new Children's Hospital in 2021, Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity (ECHC) is partnering with the Jess Mackie Memorial Fund to fund a very special enhancement within the ECHC Outdoor Performance Space, the Jess Mackie Music Garden.

When enhanced, this outdoor space, which can be accessed by children and families from all over the hospital, will host performances throughout the year. The Jess Mackie Music Garden will enable children to come together, to enjoy performances and have the option of participating, by playing on one of five free standing musical instruments, the Congas, Tembos, Rainbow Trio Chimes, Harmony Bells and Marimba.


By donating to this page in support of the Jess Mackie Memorial Fund, you will help to make the Jess Mackie Music Garden and ECHC Therapeutic Music Programme possible. Thank you so much.
