ACTIVITY BAGS  
 
 
Our Activity bags are packed with games, toys, arts and crafts and lots of goodies guaranteed to put a smile on a child's face. We currently provide bags to children in Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool and Durham.   We also provide gift bags for teenagers containing toiletries, high street vouchers and magazine vouchers.
 
 The photographs below show examples of what we include in our bags 
 
                     
 
 
                       
 
  
  
Here are some comments about our bags we have received from parents and health care workers;
 
"As one of the recipients of an activity bag from Ward M3 at Sheffield Children's Hospital my son  would like to say a big 'Thank You' for the lovely gifts he received.
My son has leukemia  and has been receiving treatment at SCH since December 2009.He was recently on the ward feeling particularly rubbish after having chemo, and the activity bag was spot on with its contents to keep him amused. He is 10 years old and loved the Battle strikers, Meccano kit and Lego. All have kept him amused when he's bored at home but can't go out as he's neutropenic. We have taken the 'Top Trumps' cards and the 'Uno' card games to play on Daycare whilst waiting to go to Theatre. The Dinosaur King notebook and reading book we have put in the overnight bag we always have packed so we have them next time we spend time on the ward.
Keep up the good work ! Hope it helps to know that you are achieving your aim in cheering up kids."

My little girl is 12 months old and is being treated at Sheffield Children's Hospital for a brain tumor. Her's is beningn but we still dont' know what the future holds. Today we were given a treasure bag from your charity and I wanted to say thank you so very much."

The bags have been flying out and every single child has been delighted and their Mum's have been so surprised and grateful to you. One little boy's Mum said, "Wow! That's amazing, how kind." I gave one to a little boy with a brain tumour on Tuesday. He was so happy when he saw the Lego and Mechanno and said, "Thanks for that, it will give me and Dad something to do later" I went to a little boy this morning who has in inoperable brain tumour. He is a beautiful little boy and was so happy to be given the bag. He slowly emptied it, looking at everything in amazement. He loved the Funny Face book and Lego.
