Hundreds of pyjamas distributed to sick Wellington children to keep them warm this winter and more are needed Wellington Hospitals Foundation’s ‘Hospi’s Pyjamas for Winter Appeal’ is making a huge difference for sick children this winter, thanks to the amazing support of the community.
Since the appeal’s launch three weeks ago, 1500 pairs of pyjamas have been donated, along with some very generous online donations to enable the purchase of additional pyjamas.
Kapiti Coast District Council, have got behind the appeal, asking all their members and staff to donate pyjamas.
Clinical Nurse Specialist Charlotte Stanczuk, who has been assisting with the distributions at Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital, wishes to thank every single individual who has donated pyjamas or made a donation online so far.
Wellington Hospitals Foundation Chair Bill Day says they’re hoping to reach a target of 5000 pairs of pyjamas by the close of the appeal at the end of June.
You can donate brand new flannelette, size 2-12, pyjamas to Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital by dropping them off at the receptions at: Kapiti Health Centre, Kenepuru Hospital, and Wellington Hospital.
