Noah's Ark Sponsorship

"Here at the Noah’s Ark Charity we believe passionately that all children in Wales should get the best possible hospital care.

Our mission is to create brighter todays and better tomorrows, ensuring the best outcome and experience possible for the children of Wales.

Every year 73,000 children, from across Wales, receive specialist and life-saving treatment at the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital in Cardiff and in communities across the nation.

Having raised more than £23 million to build and equip the hospital, today the charity work hand in hand with the NHS, providing funding for the most up to date equipment, facilities and support services for families like the play specialist team, who help children be children, despite the difficulties they are facing.

We would love to see the whole community helping us towards our fundraising goal of £10,000!"
