POST A SMILE ON A SICK CHILD’S FACE

Our Child Care Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Learners are supporting the Post Pals charity for Christmas. Helping to ‘Post a Smile on a Sick Child’s Face’ by the sending of cards, letters, emails and little gifts to seriously ill children and their siblings in the UK.

POST PALS

Post Pals is a small charity run solely by volunteers who are dedicated to making seriously ill children and their siblings smile by the sending of cards, letters, little gifts, support and friendship. We support children aged 3 to 17 in the UK.

It was set up in 2002 by teenagers who were all ill themselves. Vikki George had the idea after finding that receiving cards in the post was the only thing that made her smile when bedbound and isolated due to very severe ME. Even today, Post Pals is still run from beds and hospital beds.

The concept is simple… we feature children on the website with a forwarding address, their interests and stories, and invite members of the public from around the world to log on and send cheerful post, as well as sending items ourselves. Volunteers range from toddlers drawing pictures, right up to an 106 year old who knitted finger puppets, and some like much loved Dottie the Dalmatian aren’t even human”
