Help us make Easter happy by donating a toy from our Toy Wish list

Haven House Childrens Hospice

You will be supporting our babies, children and young people by buying a toy from our specialist wish list. Every year we receive hundreds of donated chocolate eggs at Easter time. It's a special time of year and we are very grateful for the kindness of our supporters, however, unfortunately many of our children are unable to eat chocolate. Not being able to eat, drink and swallow whole food is sometimes a consequence of the life-limiting or life-threatening condition that affects the children we care for. Many suffer from an absent gag reflex which means that they are at risk of aspiration of fluids into their lungs which can lead to a chest infection.

Many of our children are tube fed with prescription feeds to aid digestion and are fed directly by tube into the stomach. Unfortunately, this means that they are unable to enjoy a chocolate Easter egg in the same way as a well child or young person can.

While we donate some of the chocolate eggs we receive to the brothers and sisters we support, we do receive an excessive amount of chocolate eggs at Easter.

We would never turn away a kind donation from our supporters, but if you would like to help our hospice this Easter, please make a donation here or donate to our Amazon wish list of specialist toys and equipment that would have more longevity and bring fun and enjoyment to our children.
Happy Easter from everyone at Haven House Children's Hospice.

Thank you from everyone at Haven House. Happy Easter!
