Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity
The Big Feastival is proud to support Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity helps to ensure every seriously ill child in the UK has the best possible healthcare by:
- establishing over 50 specialist Road Dahl children’s nurses at hospitals in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, who provide holistic support to thousands of children with complex care needs, and their families, each year
- supporting our Roald Dahl nurses’ specialist training requirements and funding innovative, nurse-led projects that improve quality of care
- providing assistance to families caring for seriously ill children and experiencing financial hardship through our Marvellous Family Grants programme
We concentrate on placing our nurses at hospitals in areas of deprivation or where there is a need to specialise in underfunded conditions. To date we have helped over 10,000 children through our charitable work.
