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.

President

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.

School Uniform

Massive thanks. It was so lovely being able to order K exactly what she needed. Its daunting enough for children to start secondary school, let alone attending in the incorrect uniform. The family was very grateful to you.

Support for a washing machine

Thank you so much for this – I have just rung the family and Mum was really pleased, and relieved!

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.

Support for a weighted blanket

You funded a weighted blanket for a family whose autistic child was not able to sleep at night, this has had a really positive impact as the blanket has helped him settle into a sleep routine and his behavior in the day is much better due to not being tired.

We provided a bed for the daughter and an electric cooker.

Mum started to cry when I told her the good news so her daughter spoke on the family’s behalf:

Thank you very very much for your generosity and the kindness of your heart for giving us all of this! I hope God blesses you like you have blessed us. Thank you. (Daughter, 14 years old).
