Xmas Requests 2019 - An Update
We will open for gift requests on Monday 4th November at midday. We will close for requests at midnight on Friday 8th November at midnight.
***ANY REQUESTS BEFORE OR AFTER THAT TIME WILL NOT BE PROCESSED OR RESPONDED TO *****
We will announce the e mail address gift requests are to be sent to.
The logistical process around what we do is huge and run by a very small team of unpaid committee members.
If we are swamped with requests, we may close sooner and successful applicants will be dealt with on a first come basis.
WE WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING IN ORDER TO CONSIDER REQUESTS:
Name and age of your child
Illness (brief details)
Names /phone numbers / e-mail address of parents or guardians
Best address for delivery of gift.
What gift they would like
Unfortunately, due to previous unscrupulous attempts to scam us, we have to ask for confirmation of your child’s condition.This can be as simple as scanning in / photographing a recent letter from a consultant or letter regarding an appointment from the hospital where they are being treated. It just provides us with a reference point with which to check.
Please remember our charity is focused on children battling with cancer and leukaemia.
PLEASE KEEP GIFT REQUESTS REALISTIC. In the past we have had requests for brand new Iphones, Ipads, even Apple Mac computers for an 18mth old child! (??).
The charity has limited funds and so many children to help. Demand increases year on year. Priority has to be given to those children we have not helped previously.
