Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity
MCSA’s chosen Christmas Charity this year is Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
How the charity works
Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity funds Roald Dahl Specialist Children’s Nurses in communities across the UK.
They provide expert care and support to children with serious illnesses, and their families. We believe every seriously ill child should have access to the best possible healthcare.
More about Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity
- Every seriously ill child has a specialist nurse. Every child with a serious illness in the UK should have access to the knowledge, skills and experience required to meet their healthcare needs, no matter where they live. That’s why we create and fund specialist nursing posts within the NHS across the UK.
- Every seriously ill child receives quality care. It is essential that children’s nurses across the UK are fully supported to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver the best care possible. That’s why we provide professional support to our Roald Dahl nurses to enhance their skills and foster innovation to improve services for seriously ill children.
What MCSA are doing to support the Charity
Mince Pie Mondays
For the Monday’s during December leading up to Christmas, the staff here at MCSA will be able to bake their own Mince Pies to then be sold in the office with the money made going to the charity.
Extra Day Off Work Raffle
The staff at MCSA will be able to put their names into a raffle to be drawn with the winners being given an extra day off work in the new year! With all the money made from buying a ticket for the raffle once again going to help the charity out!
Raffle & Tombola
Every year MCSA hold a staff raffle and tombola for Christmas and sometimes dress up in themed outfits to get into the spirit of fundraising – something we like to do!
This year we will be doing the same, and all proceeds raised from our Christmas 2017 fundraising will be donated to Action for Children.
Christmas Cards Donation
We have chosen to donate the funds we will have used to purchase and send Christmas Cards to Action for Children and to help raise awareness of the charity to our customers, partners and suppliers.
