Charity of the Year

Charity of the Year 2020 - Theodora Children's Charity

We're very proud to announce Theodora Children's Charity as our Charity of the Year 2019.

Theodora Children’s Charity was founded in 1994 by two brothers, in memory of their mother Théodora, who brought joy and laughter to one of her sons when he was hospitalised as a child. Theodora Children’s Charity is an inspirational and pioneering charity which successfully works to improve children’s experience of being in hospital.

“We're very excited to have been selected as The Centre's charity of the year. The training will be invaluable to our team and will drive momentum towards our objective to grow the reach of our Giggle Doctor programme and visit more children in hospital.” 
Lindsay Roche, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser

The team of specially trained performers, known as Giggle Doctors, increase opportunities for play, reduce distress and anxiety and give children back an element of control. The team achieve this through improvised play which puts the child at the centre of the interaction, through the use of music, magic, storytelling, comedy and mime.
