Charity Overview

Spread a Smile provides critically ill children in NHS hospitals with access to enhanced play and entertainment during some of the darkest times of their lives. From the moment of diagnosis, they have a direct impact on the wellbeing of these children; helping reduce anxiety, build confidence, and provide a distraction from difficult treatments and painful procedures. Their teams of entertainers, including magicians, singers, artists, face-painters, and therapy dogs, make regular bedside visits. Additional support includes art initiatives and family events/outings
