Isolation Arts and Craft Bags

for Fletcher's Fund

£0.00 + £0.00 Gift Aid = £0.00
Donated to Isolation Arts and Craft Bags’s £1000.00 Goal
We provide Arts and Craft bags to give to children when they are in isolation on Paediatric Oncology Wards in Leeds Children Hospital and Great North Children's Hospital, Newcastle (and more hospitals in the future). Isolated children cannot leave their room and cannot have too many visitors (if any). The bags are full of the usual Arts and Crafts items, as well as a craft kit and book for the child and a set of headphones, a notebook, and a biro pen for the parents. The bags have a budget of £10 each and are split into 4 ages ranges and are packed with appropriate items, according to the childhood development stages. The idea is to provide Art Therapy to the child to alleviate boredom, and to be used a distraction tool whilst undergoing treatment.

The charity

Fletcher's Fund was founded in memory of a 23 month old little boy, Fletcher, who died of cancer. Our charity's aim is 'making memories' by providing grants to families with children living with cancer to enable them to buy new toys and play equipment, go on days out and contribute toward holidays. Anything to help the families and children have fun and make precious memories together. We also donate Arts and Crafts bags to Paediatric Oncology Wards.

Registered charity (no. 1172985).

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
