The Charity

The Royal Manchester Children's Hospital

The purpose of this journey is to raise funds for the RMCH Charity, which exists to to enhance the experience of the 276,000 children cared for by Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital each and every year.

Their aims are very straightforward: to support excellence in the treatment, research and care that they provide to their young patients, now and always. They aim to make a real difference to the children and young people in their care by ensuring they continue to receive the highest quality treatment in the highest quality facilities.

They do this by focusing their fundraising efforts on three key areas, namely treatment, research and care. These can include the purchase of specialist equipment to diagnose and provide treatment of their young patients more quickly and easily, creating as child-friendly an environment as possible and funding pioneering medical research to increase their understanding of children’s illnesses and the optimum way to treat them

People and organisations from across the country are already active supporters of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. Their supporters include thousands of individuals, businesses and community organisations, each making their own unique contribution to make life better for the hospital’s patients and their families.


The work they do for children and families alike is fantastic. You can read more about the charity on their website, or by watching the video below.
