Find out about what's going on with the Palmer Children's Trust.

Here there are details of fundraising events, news on challenges that volunteers are participating in and how we are spending the money we receive on improving the lives of children or young people suffering from life limiting or terminal illness.


We will be launching the sale of our Merrythought limited edition bears on 17th March 2016.  Through the kind donation of Merrythought, who matched our purchase, we have had 100 bears made especially for us.  Some of the bears already have homes as they were prizes for fundraising events.  Look out for our new ‘Shop’ page coming in March.

Are you in need of assistance?  Do you know of a terminally ill child or a young person with a life limited illness?  Do you a parent who has been told their child is severly ill?  Have you heard of a children’s hospital or hospice seeking a specific piece of equipment?  Then drop us a line.  We are looking to distribute £10,000 in Q2 of 2016.
