What were Sophie’s wishes?

Sophie wanted the following changed around the country:

  • Play specialist 7 days a week in hospitals.

  • Improvements to children’s food

  • Parents to be fed when staying overnight with their child

  • Training for health professionals on childhood cancer

  • Increase in childhood cancer funding.

 

Do we just support children with cancer?

No, although Sophie died from cancer we support every family admitted to hospital with their child no matter what illness or injury has brought them there. 

How do I sponsor a pizza night? 

The cost to sponsor a Sophie’s Saturday Supper Pizza Night varies depending on the ward and hospital. You can find the prices on our online Shop. You can choose the hospital and date. If you would like to deliver the pizzas please email us to let us know. 

What does my donation get spent on?

We receive referrals from doctors or nurses at the hospital for families in real difficulty (often financial) which has been made worse because they have a child in hospital. We fund transport costs (fuel vouchers, bus or train passes or taxis), meal vouchers at the hospital, birthday parties for children or the parent whilst in hospital, clothes, Costa vouchers, funding the art therapist who works weekly at the hospital, parent packs that we provide etc. We also need to buy extra supplies of food and drink when stocks run low. Your donation will go to one of these things. Without funding we cannot provide this support and families would struggle whilst their child is in hospital.
