Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity
Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity sits at the heart of Scotland’s largest children’s hospital, raising money to ensure that every baby, child and young person treated there has the best possible care and experience.
This year, the Charity is looking for Kiltwalkers to Wander, Stroll and Stride in aid of its latest appeal, which is raising money to help children with kidney failure. Their kidneys may have failed, but for these patients and their families, failure is not an option. For our everyone supporting GCHC, #FailureIsNotAnOption.
Each year, hundreds of children from across Scotland are treated on the Renal Ward for kidney failure - a life long, life-limiting condition which cannot be cured.
These children face years of medication and dialysis, and an endless wait until a kidney match becomes available for transplant. Not only does kidney failure rob these children of their health, it robs them of their childhood as they spend many days in hospital each week away from their home, family and school friends.
With your support, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity hopes to raise £500,000 to enhance care and services on the unit, to ensure that these resilient children from across the country receive care on the Renal Ward that is second-to-none.
