Who we are

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal is the only charity fundraising exclusively to support Bristol Children’s Hospital. Since 1995, The Grand Appeal has raised over £31 million to transform the lives of sick babies and children at Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Special Care Baby Unit, providing life-saving equipment, patient activities, new services and family accommodation.

What we do 

Bristol Children’s Hospital is one of the UK’s leading children’s hospitals treating over 100,000 patients every year from across the South West, South Wales and beyond with life-threatening illnesses and serves as the paediatric intensive care centre for the whole South West region. The hospital is an international, national and regional specialist centre of excellence for a range of services including neurosurgery, burns, cardiac, leukaemia and bone marrow transplants.

The Grand Appeal provides ground-breaking facilities at the Hospital, including the South of England’s only 3T MRI scanner and intra-operative scanning suite, which has revolutionised the treatment of children with neurological conditions requiring highly complex surgery and a pioneering Cardiac Hybrid Theatre and Integrated Cancer Unit, meaning a sick child can receive all of their treatment in one place.

We also fund arts, music and play programmes and facilities at the Hospital, which play a major role in a child’s recovery and rehabilitation. Arts workshops, dedicated music therapy sessions and school activities all provide opportunities for distraction and well being for hospital patients.

Why we need you

The Grand Appeal is committed to keeping families together whilst their child is cared for at the Hospital, having funded over £1 million of family facilities and accommodation at Bristol Children’s Hospital and St Michael’s Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit.

We receive no statutory funding and rely entirely on the generous support of the local community, businesses, grant-making trusts and other philanthropic organisations and individuals for support.

Skydive for The Grand Appeal  in our 21st anniversary year and help save the lives of children from across Bristol, the South West and beyond.

 

1. SELECT A CHARITY

A list of charities that we are partnered with are here for you to select. Some of the charities that we work with have fundraising targets and others are self-funded by yourself, each charity we work with will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.

2. BOOK YOUR SKYDIVE

You can book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person on any operational day. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-selected days that you are more than welcome to join.

3. START FUNDRAISING

OK you’re all set – This is now the time to start fundraising for your selected charity, we recommend to set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice. Please remember you are unable to use any money raised to pay for your skydive and if you have a target set by the charity you have to hit this 3 weeks before the date of your jump to ensure these funds are online for the charity to see!
