We are one of the few volunteer charities solely dedicated to helping children feel more comfortable while 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 was founded in 2015 by Amanda Chadwick and Chelsea Williams. It was 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 who sew all the garments according to strict guidelines in order to guarantee quality and safety. All garments are 100% cotton and have been designed in conjunction with healthcare professionals. Through the Fairies’ 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.
