Sunflowers Children's Action Group
Who we are
Sunflowers Children's Action group is a small registered Charity that aims to make a difference to the lives of local children who live with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses, by arranging special actitivies and events for them, promoting friendship, giving something to look forward to, making memories and enhancing mental health.
As a volunteer-run charity, we aim to bring a bit of joy to otherwise challenging lives. The illnesses that the children have may vary but ultimately have the same effect on the children; they lose out on events and special occasions, often to undergo painful and complicated medical procedures. They miss out on school and other “normal” activities they see their friends taking part in, leaving the children feeling isolated and “different”.
Sunflowers ensures the children have the opportunity to celebrate and have fun, showing them life is more than a hospital room. Our aim is to back a little bit of normality and happiness into these brave and wonderful children’s lives. We are a very small team, willing to give our spare time and efforts so that every penny, outside of bonafide costs, goes straight to helping the children and their families.
