Sparkle for Axl

This year, we are holding our Sparkle for Axl day on Friday 13 December.

We are raising money to buy toys and specialist play equipment for our young patients to use throughout the year. This year, we hope to invest more in virtual reality kits, which have been proven to have therapeutic benefits to c children under stress in hospital.

For more details about our Sparkle for Axl appeal and how to take part, please visit our Sparkle for Axl page here.

If you would like more information, please call our charity office on 01274 274809.

We will be very grateful to accept Christmas gifts again this year for our young patients across all the departments of our hospitals.
