Donations and Fundraising

Thank you to everyone who has kindly donated to our Charity – your generosity makes a real difference to local children and their families

Make a Donation

You can make a donation through our JustGiving page or by cheque.

If you are thinking about making a donation here is some information you may wish to know.

You can direct your donation to a specific area which can be:

  • Holly Ward – the new Children’s Unit at Hinchingbrooke Hospital
  • Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Hinchingbrooke Hospital
  • Community – Children who receive care in the community

Or you can leave it to us to ensure your money is used where it is most needed and in this case, if you are paying by cheque, please leave the back of the cheque blank.

Please make your cheque payable to “Huntingdonshire Children’s Charity” and send to Dreamdrops Charity Administrator, Dreamdrops, Unit 3, Meadow Lane, St. Ives PE27 4LG marking clearly on the back where you would like your donation to go.

Please include your address so that we can write to thank you for your donation and also send you information on the Gift Aid Scheme.

The ‘dreamdrops’ Fundraising Committee are very grateful to all those people that donate to the charity by sending cheques in the post or through our Justgiving Site.

Current Focus For Fundraising

Dreamdrops has launched an Appeal to raise funds for the Special Care Baby Unit and we are also planning to update the outside Activity Area which has been designed for children to be seen in outpatients or children who are in hospital a long time – able to be outside and active but not well enough to be at home such as a child on a long course of treatment.

The Dreamdrops rose

Are you looking for a wonderful birthday, anniversary or Christmas present?  Or just want to say thank you to someone special?  Then why not purchase a Dreamdrops Rose from World of Roses and support our charity at the same time.  The rose, which was generously commissioned for Dreamdrops by the members of Brampton Golf Club, is a wonderful apricot coloured shrub rose which grows to around 4 feet with a slight fragrance and dark green glossy foliage. Height and Spread:(48in x 24in)

Take your pick from bare root roses (£12.99 per rose with £2 donated to our charity) or potted roses (£19.99 per rose with £3 donated to our charity).

You can order the rose online at The World of Roses website – click here:  World of Roses: Dreamdrops Rose

Alternatively, order forms for the rose can be obtained by emailing us at dreamdrops.dreamdrops@nhs.net or by contacting the World of Roses, Briar Patch Nursery, Upper Caldecote, Bedfordshire SG18 9BS.  Telephone 08452 606888.

Please note that bare root roses are available at the end of October to the end of March and potted roses are available September to mid July.
