Pyjama Fairies is the only UK charity to make pyjamas and surgical gowns specially designed for babies and children up to age 16 having surgery or any other associated medical test. Each garment is made in colourful, age-appropriate fabric and is designed to minimise discomfort when medical intervention is necessary. Your child can remain fully dressed, safe and warm whilst being examined and throughout their stay in hospital. While other great organisations focus on research and finding a cure, we work to improve the quality of life of children and their families as they undergo surgeries and treatment. Pyjama Fairies mission is to make hospital stays easier for children and their families
Pyjama Fairies was founded in May 2015 to bring comfort and support to young patients and their families whilst in hospital. We started with a simple goal: to create and distribute beautiful pyjamas and surgical gowns that give children an emotional boost and remind them that they are not defined by their illness.
The charity is run entirely by volunteers – (we like to call them Fairies because they create the magic!). Through their hard work and nimble fingers we have been able to donate over 4,000 garments free of charge each year directly to hospital wards throughout the UK. This ensures that children can get access to our pyjamas and gowns in emergency situations. Parents and carers can pre-order garments – the first set of pyjamas and gown is free with a £4 donation to cover postage and packaging.
