We’d Like to say a HUGE Thank you to TUI for electing us as one of their chosen charities..
Welcome to Bristol Children’s Charity.
It is with great humility that I accept the role as Chairman of Bristol Children’s Charity. Following on from the incredible work my predecessor Jan Reynolds MBE did, it’s quite a daunting prospect for me, but being reminded that I was a part of Jan’s team and helped her to lay some of the solid foundation stones both she and Jess Warrack place for us; made the decision that little bit easier.
My aim is to build on that success and to help make this charity even bigger and stronger than it has ever been. I am incredibly lucky to have an amazing team to support my vision going forward – we have some great ideas to raise the funds needed in order to help even more disadvantaged children in and around Bristol.
We need to build relationships with local businesses, and ideally various departments within the councils, i want to create a synergy between us and the Council and use social media and technology to raise those vital funds and awareness at the same time. Whilst we do need to adapt to an ever competitive sector, I remember something a former Chair and now our Vice President Tim Duggan once said – and that was “Let’s make some money, but have fun whilst doing it” – I firmly believe in this mantra as we have no paid officials, so it’s important we enjoy what we do.
In closing, I’d like to thank all those that have have previously and continue to support us year on year, both volunteers and donators alike – without you, it would be almost impossible to continue the work that we do.
HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Bristol Children's Charity strives to improve the lives of local children less fortunate than ourselves. We have NO PAID officials so all the funds raised go to help children in Bristol and surrounding areas.

Support for a specialist P Pod set
Support for a washing machine
She asked me to thank you on her behalf, so I would be grateful if you would pass this on to the relevant people within your organisation.
It will make such a difference to her and the children – having two young boys with ADHD means a lot of washing as you can imagine.
Once again thank you so much for the generous funding to ensure this happened. I know we are grateful and so are the family and school.
Support for single beds and bedding
I am very privileged to be able to support these families and your charity is hugely appreciated for the work that you do in contributing to their plights to make a better life for themselves.
