In September 2013, we donated £500,000 to help children and their families at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, as part of their Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal.
The expansion of Bristol Royal Hospital for Children will see the incorporation of new clinical specialities to create one of the only multi-disciplinary children’s hospitals in the UK, with a wide provision of clinical facilities all under one roof.
The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children opened in 2001, and offers support for local children. Since its opening there has been several expansions such as another ward being built in 2007 as well the combination of two specialist services in 2015. We’re proud to support the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and the amazing people that work there.
Our gift will serve to transform facilities on the new Integrated Cancer Unit and will enable the hospital to invest in a ground-breaking Paediatric Intraoperative MRI Scanner.

The new, ground-breaking facilities will set Bristol Royal Hospital for Children apart from others in the UK and ensure that patients throughout the South can access the very best world-class care, surgery and research.
