Hospi’s Pyjamas for Winter Appeal
Please donate a pair of new flannelette pyjamas, or make a monetary donation
Warm kids are healthy kids. Help Hospi keep our kids warm this winter!
Wellington Hospitals Foundation is calling for brand new pyjamas for sick children both in Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital, and out in our community.
Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital sees a significant increase in the number of children who are admitted to hospital over the winter months, and many of them come without a pair of pyjamas. For many Wellington families in need, the simple act of having warm pyjamas and heating their home is more than they can afford. A warm pair of pyjamas, to keep our children warm at night, can help prevent them from being admitted to hospital this winter.
Clinical Nurse Specialist at Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital, Charlotte Stanczuk said, “This appeal will make a huge difference this winter for the many children who come to hospital. We also have a large number of sick children in our care who are seen at home by our community nurses, and we want to help them also. Thank you for helping keep sick kids warm this winter.”
All donated pyjamas MUST BE BRAND NEW. Size 2-10, flannelette 2 piece pyjama sets preferred. Unisex, Boys and Girls pyjamas needed.
