Welcome to Sophie’s Appeal

The aim of Sophie’s Appeal is to support the social, emotional and educational welfare of children, their families, nursing and support staff and provide a caring and supporting environment in both local hospitals and in the community.

There are so many ways in which the Trust can provide support to parents, carers and schools who find themselves suddenly faced with the reality of cancer.

Testimonial

Thank you to Lin, Mike and everyone at Sophie’s for the amazing facelift at Northbrook Ward and the difference it has made to the children staying there. Our Timmy is back in with another infection and his face just beamed when he saw Tinkerbell and Winnie in his room. For the children who can’t venture out the room or go into the playroom to have their own “Wonderland” in their room is just amazing, it’s made such a difference to our stay this time. The corridors are a children’s paradise full of their favourite characters.
Thank you to everyone raising money for this amazing charity I promise you every single penny is making a huge difference to children right now
