"Here at the Noah’s Ark Charity we believe passionately that all children in Wales should get the best possible hospital care. Our mission is to create brighter todays and better tomorrows, ensuring the best outcome and experience possible for the children of Wales. Every year 73,000 children, from across Wales, receive specialist and life-saving treatment at the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital in Cardiff.
Working in partnership with our hospital colleagues, we respond to the needs of both frontline staff and families. We fund cutting edge equipment and facilities through our grant making scheme and run appeals to raise funds for specific things like the neonatal intensive care unit. Our Here for You Appeal is raising funds for a much needed emotional support services for children and families within the hospital. We would love to see the whole community helping us raise £15,000 through the Reindeer Run - every pound will make an incredible difference!'
