We are a Children's Charity who raise money to improve the lives of local children


'The pain of a childhood cancer diagnosis is indescribable - emotional support is desperately needed now.

Emily’s Gift is an Appeal, under the umbrella of The Pied Piper Appeal that will be launched on March 10th 2023, founded by Julie Kent MBE. Our mission is to raise £500,000 by 10 March 2024 to fund the employment of a psychologist for 10 years to ensure all children and their families receive psychological support while their child has cancer treatment at the Emily Kent Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and when they are in remission.

No child should ever experience cancer. Your generosity will help us to provide professional emotional support for children and their families to help them cope with the trauma. 100% of your donation goes to the Emily’s Gift cause.

About the charity

The Pied Piper Appeal raises money to make a difference to sick and disabled children in Gloucestershire by funding the Children's Centre at GRH, supporting SEND schools, sending children and their families on Wish Holidays and improving experiences with mental health facilities.
