If you’re looking to donate toys

We appreciate all your offers of toy donations, but many mainstream toys aren’t suitable for most of the children we care for, so we may not be able to accept them.

The best way to help children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions is to make a donation. It costs over £4million a year to run our services, and the majority of our funding comes from charitable giving. We wouldn’t be able to provide our vital services without your help.

However… There are some toys, gift cards and craft materials that we’d love to receive! Our Activities team have put together a specialist Amazon Wishlist full of the items we’d be excited to receive from you. These items will help us put on messy play afternoons, cosy up and read a story together, or spend time having fun away from the hospice at the cinema or out at local attractions. Please do not send us any toys or products not on our Wishlist.

It's really easy to buy from our Wishlist:

1. Browse our Wishlist using the link below.
2. Select the item that you'd like to donate.
3. Make sure you select Chestnut Tree House as the delivery address. (Make sure there's no other items in your basket too!)
4. Amazon will deliver your kind gift directly to us.
