Gifts in kind

    Gifts in kind support us and help save money by providing essential goods or services. While the best gift is a donation we realise this is not always possible and appreciate that people can contribute in other ways.


    Organisations can work with us to identify where they can best be placed to help, as well as ensuring promotional opportunities.

    If your business would like to get in touch about an  opportunity, we would love to hear from you. 

    Please email or call 01223 217757


    Individuals who wish to give in kind donations should speak to us first. We can help make sure your kind offer will be suitable for the hospitals. Please see below regarding toys and clothing.

    Typical gift in kind items


    At certain times of the year the hospital accepts toys as gifts for children which can bring a much needed smile to their faces.

    Please check with us if we're accepting toys.

    Toys & activities should be:

    • Brand new toys - we cannot accept second hand toys
    • Not gift wrapped - please do not wrap presents, as we’ll need to see what it is so we know who we can give it to.
    • Ideal toys include: board games, computer games, crafts, Lego, stocking fillers
    • For 0 to 18 year olds

    Knitted clothes

    • We cannot always accept knitted clothing for the Rosie due to storage and infection control. Please check with us first.

    What we can't use

    • Second hand items

    If you would like to donate a gift in person you will also need to complete a visitors form. Please contact us for more details.
