Since 2014 we have worked with a variety of charities and causes, as part of our commitment to making the communities we serve better places to live, work and grow up in. After consultation with our parents, families and children we are so proud to announce Theodora Children’s Charity as our partner for 2019. After working with Children’s Wards at our local Hospitals throughout 2018 we strongly believe that partnering with Theodora for 2019 will be a fantastic continuation of the work we have put in and partnerships we have established this year.
Susan Mills, Managing Director, commented on our upcoming partnership, saying “After being introduced to Theodora at the Nursery World Awards in September we were all touched by the amazing work they do. I think it’s going to be a wonderful partnership and I’m so glad we have been given an opportunity to continue to make such a difference to local children’s experience in hospitals throughout Nottinghamshire.” Alice Barley, Fundraising and Communications Manager at Theodora added “We’re a small charity trying to make a big difference so it is always great when you meet people who really understand the importance of the work we do. This is such an exciting opportunity to work with Cherubs Nurseries!”
Theodora Children’s Charity believe that all children deserve laughter. Their mission at the heart of their work is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment. Their Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres across England. By combining music, play, magic, and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. Theodora believe that every sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Throughout 2019 we will aim to fundraise as much as possible, through fundraising and sponsored events, to enable Theodora’s Giggle Doctors to increase visits to the Queen’s Medical Centre (Nottingham) and to work with them to reach out, further, to Nottinghamshire children. Each visit to a child costs Theodora £10 so every pound raised really will make such a difference. To find out more about Theodora Children’s Charity please click here.
