Donate - Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity


Every day, seriously ill children and young people arrive at Edinburgh’s children’s hospital. Every day, with your help, we can make sure they are children first and patients second from the moment they begin their hospital journey.

We need your help...

£10 can provide a memory box to bring comfort to a bereaved family.

£20 can pay for a bedside support session so children in hospital feel less alone.

£50 can fund life-changing equipment and ground-breaking research, so every child receives the best care possible.

Our regular givers are an invaluable part of ECHC. A regular gift, no matter how big or small, enables us to continue transforming the lives of the children and young people we support, not just today but for many years to come. You can choose to make monthly, quarterly and annual donations.
