Our Eid Wish List is now open!

With your help, we can make sure that children and young people spending Eid Leeds Children’s Hospital will still be able to join in the celebrations with their family. 

 Buy a gift from our wish list

Every gift on the Wish List has been selected by hospital play specialists and youth workers to be suitable for children and young people in hospital taking into account all ages, abilities, and conditions. This year’s wish list includes gifts for premature babies, sensory toys for patients with complex needs, gifts for teenagers, and toys and games that can be enjoyed from bed.         

Those wishing to donate simply purchase a gift or gifts from the online Wish List, gifts are then delivered directly to Leeds Children’s Hospital where staff will wrap and distribute them throughout the hospital ready for Eid. 

Laura Whelan, Head of Nursing at Leeds Children’s Hospital, explained why donated gifts are so important.

“Some of our patients will be with us for weeks or even months at time. Some patients will find themselves in hospital unexpectedly with no time to plan. Having a child in hospital places a huge strain on a family so by making sure that every child receives a gift, we can make a huge difference for these families and make sure that even our sickest patients will enjoy some presents at Eid!

"Gifts on our Wish List have been specifically chosen by hospital staff so you know that the gift you are giving will be suitable and gratefully received by a child or young person”
