Since 1994, the Children’s Hospital Trust, the Fundraising Arm of the Hospital has helpd raise funds for building upgrades, new equipment and skills development programmes. As the Hospital was built in 1956 the outdated facilities were in critical need of upgrading. Despite this the Hospital is world-renowned as a centre of excellence in paediatric health-care and research.
100% of donations received by the Trust go directly to the Hospital, not a single cent is spent on administration costs.
