New stretch target

Additional funds would allow us to supply gifts into 2021.

The Sunshine Box is a non-profit charity that raises funds to fill toy boxes for children in hospitals around Central Scotland. The project started as a simple donation drive to collect Easter eggs for one of the children's wards at Ninewells Hospital Dundee and quickly grew into a registered Scottish Charity (SC046825) that supplies gifts to over 30 different toy boxes to hospitals in Tayside & Fife. The charity was officially founded in August 2016.

The toy boxes are regularly filled with brand new toys, books and games for children aged 0-16 years who are undergoing painful and frightening procedures. They can choose a gift to make the difficult and daunting experience of being in hospital somewhat more comfortable.

This year we are running a donation drive to ensure every sick child who has to spend Christmas in one of the hospitals we work with will receive their own gift from Santa's box. As the COVID pandemic continues and restrictions remain in place on the number of family members allowed to visit children,  we hope this will bring some joy to the kids, their families and the staff.

Let's make 'The Sunshine Box: Christmas Gift Donation Drive' happen
