The money raised through our Lollipop Fund helps support Willow Ward (Children's Ward) at Darent Valley Hospital, as well as Paediatric services across Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust. 

Money raised has helped to introduce a Children’s High Dependency Unit with a range of expensive specialist equipment to care for seriously ill children. We have been able to purchase sensory equipment to help aid recovery, and play equipment for the Ward garden that is accessible for children of all abilities. 

Charitable funds are used to help enhance the Ward environment, the Children's Resources Centre (Children's Outpatients) and Paediatric A&E. We have introduced overnight facilities for parents who wish to stay close to their poorly child. We have also been able to support Paediatric staff to deliver a calendar of events, such as Christmas and Easter activities, as well as outings for the Epilepsy Support Group.  

We work closely with our Play Specialists to deliver projects that benefits a child's well-being, as well as investing in the latest equipment to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions. 

With your support we are so proud to be able to offer so much more than we could provide through the NHS budget alone. 

Thank you for your continued support!
