Registration is of course free.

We’ve been in touch with Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House and here’s this years wish lists and guidelines for you.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital

BCH receive less presents for their new-borns (0-3 months) and teenage patients (12-16 years).

Soft toys are perfect for new-borns – a good website for ideas is the Early Learning Centre. Feedback they have received from staff on the wards is that gift cards (Amazon, Game, iTunes etc.) go down a treat for the teenagers.

Just a few things to also bear in mind…

Due to their Infection Control policy, Birmingham Children’s Hospital can only accept brand new toys for their patients that are in the original packaging. Unfortunately, cuddly toys are not allowed unless in packaging as they could bring in infections from outside the hospital which could be potentially harmful to patients.

Please note that in the interests of children’s dietary health and the dental health of patients Birmingham Children’s Hospital can no longer accept donations of sweets or chocolate.

Ronald McDonald House

For the House Kitchens believe it or not

Coffee, Tea, Sugar,
Air freshener, Bleach, Anti-bac, Toilet duck,
Cleaning sponges, Loo rolls, Kitchen rolls, Blue rolls,
Biscuits, Squash, Flavoured syrups for waffles,
Henry Hoover bags, Shake and Vac

Any presents for kids aged 0-16yrs

Any presents for parents (who will be too busy to think of themselves)

Finally, they are desperate for bed linen, the quilts are £20 each and are on their Amazon list If people wanted to donate amazon gift vouchers, they could club them together at the house and buy some.

Their Amazon List is here 
and the quilts they are after are here
