Donate towards our Christmas Day Out for children with kidney disease cared for at the Children’s Kidney Centre, Cardiff, and their families

Date: 17 November 2021 | By: paul

We are looking for donations and sponsors to contribute towards our Christmas Day Out. This year, the Christmas Day Out offers young people with kidney disease and their families, 85 complimentary tickets to see Beauty and The Beast in the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff – a new and magical experience they usually wouldn’t be able to access.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, our community of paediatric kidney patients were classified as extremely vulnerable and had to shield on top of an already disabling illness, which added to their feelings of loneliness and anxiety. A day like this lifts spirits and encourages social interaction with other patients with lived experience of kidney disease. It helps them to feel reassured that they’re not alone, whilst building their self-esteem and confidence. With your support, you will be helping us to help them lead a better quality of life as they move out of isolation during a very difficult two years.

We are asking for contributions towards the cost of tickets – the price of one ticket ranges from £75-£95, and the total cost of the tickets requested this year is £6255. With your generosity, we’ll be able to offer all the children and families who would like to attend a place at no additional cost to themselves.

As a thank you for your donation, The Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales, would offer you a public thanks by handing out your leaflets or promotional literature with our goodie bags at the Christmas Day Out and your company would be mentioned and thanked in a press release.

Donations of and over £1000 would be received with a cheque presentation and press release, and donations over £5000 would then be considered Corporate Partnership, and we would promote your company alongside the refurbishment of the Children’s Kidney Centre, Cardiff.

As you know, the pandemic forced all in-person events since 2020 to be postponed. Therefore, we are thrilled to be able to plan such an event for these young patients and their families, and we hope that the Christmas Day Out can offer connection and fun – two things so many of our patients have missed. Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales want to thank you in advance for reading this and considering giving us your support.
