We are really excited to announce that, this Christmas, we’re joining forces with three other local children’s cancer charities to host a special Christmas party for the oncology children at The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Ourselves, Friends of Rosie, Holly’s Hearts and The Joshua Tree have all come together to jointly host this special event. Each charity exists solely to support children with cancer and together we wanted to do something special for the children and their families.
The party is for the children of Ward 86, the Bone Marrow Unit and their siblings and families. It’s a free of charge event for children who are currently undergoing treatment or have completed treatment within the last 2 years.
The party will be an opportunity for the children and their families to get together, have a break from the ward and enjoy a bit of festive cheer at a difficult time in their lives.
Each charity has been allocated a role and for us at Milly’s Smiles we are thrilled to be responsible for building Santa’s Grotto!
We have already had some amazing donations of Christmas decorations from some very generous people and businesses – we will be highlighting their kindness in later posts.
We feel honoured to be part of this experience for the children and families that we support and to be working alongside other fantastic charities too.
