Sunflowers Children's Action group is a small registered Charity that aims to make a difference to the lives of 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.

During COVID and the lockdowns, many families have found the support network that once kept them afloat has been ripped away due to new restrictions, leaving them alone at a crucial moment when their children are more at risk than ever.

Sunflowers have provided vital support during this time when many of the children, who already had interrupted lives, were told to isolate, taking away what little freedom they had. We have sent boxes full of toys and activities for them to enjoy from their homes and sunflower growing kits, as well as “boredom buster” sessions for families in the form of zoom parties, quizzes, fairy-tale sessions and more. Our children will never forget our Virtual Christmas party with a difference, with so many celebrities giving their time to add to the fun through our website.

Our dearest hope is that we can start to host events where children can once again come together, but we can only do that if we have the funding to do so.  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.
