We are delighted to announce that Auntie Anne’s UK will be supporting Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. This marvellous charity funds Roald Dahl specialist children’s nurses who support children and families living with serious conditions which are often not in the spotlight, including Sickle Cell Anaemia, Epilepsy, Rare Diseases, Acquired Brain Injury and Neurological conditions. Currently there are 70 nurses working in communities and hospitals across the UK.
Alongside the nurses, the charity also provides Marvellous Family Grants for families living in financial hardship while caring for a seriously ill child. They also fund a nurse led innovation programme called ‘The Marvellous Inventing Room’, which is a place where amazing new creations, that provide even more support for seriously ill children are dreamed up and turned into a reality by marvellous healthcare professionals. If you want to learn more about the charity or donate, please have a look at their website: www.roalddahlcharity.organd text ‘AUNT18’ and the amount you want to donate, e.g. £10 to 70070.
We will be raising money for our chosen charity in several ways. In store we will be donating 20p from every campaign product (starting in September) plus various other fundraising events throughout the year. Head Office will also be raising money through a variety of events – starting with running the Oxford Half Marathon on the 7 October! We can’t wait to support Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity in the coming months. Join us and help to ensure that every seriously ill child in the UK can benefit from the specialist support of a Roald Dahl Nurse.
