Wear a Sweater and Help Make Things Better At Birmingham Children’s Hospital this Christmas

Birmingham Children’s Hospital is calling for people from across the West Midlands to take part in its second annual Jolly Jumper Day, on Friday 11 December.

Get into the festive spirit and pull on your brightest, wackiest or most ho-ho-ho-horrendous novelty pullover and text MAGIC to 70111 to donate £3 to the hospital’s Christmas Appeal.

This December, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity aims to raise £300,000 to add an exciting interactive play space to its Eye Department, as well as double the size of the waiting room.

Every donation to the Eye Believe Appeal will support the charity in making a difference to the experience of its Eye Department patients, helping to give them the warmest of welcomes all year round.

Miranda Williams, Public Fundraising Manager at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “Last year people hundreds of people put on a sweater to make things better for our patients and their families and this year we hope they will do the same.

“We want to raise £300,000 to improve our Eye Department adding a brand new play area with an interactive floor and toys, suitable for children with impaired vision, as well as increasing the size of the waiting room to give families more space when they are in the department.
