... Helping poorly children sparkle
Pyjama Fairies was founded in May 2015 to bring comfort and support to young patients and their families in hospitals in the UK. It is run entirely by volunteers and relies solely on donations. We have a simple goal: to create and distribute beautiful pyjamas and surgical gowns to give to children at a time of fear and emotional distress.
Our pyjamas are specially designed with front opening to make dressing easier and to allow ease of access for medical professionals. Our surgical gowns are made in beautiful, bright, fun fabrics and help alleviate some of the fear that children have in a medicalised environment.
All our gowns and pyjamas are made by a team of volunteers, throughout the UK, who fund most of the garments themselves.
March 2016 was a particularly busy month, not only were we awarded a community grant from The Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund, but when we were featured as part of a BBC Breakfast item on Harry Maceachen; a transplant patient; we had an influx of orders. Thankfully the feature also brought with it hundreds more keen volunteers. Due to the overwhelming interest in Pyjama Fairies a follow up feature was aired on BBC Breakfast on Easter Monday and became the 'most watched' item on their website.
