Pied Piper. A local charity supporting local children

Our work as the county's leading children's charity is as vitally important today as when we started out in 1992.

Our biggest achievement to date is helping to fund a brand new children's hospital wing. Today... not a month goes by without us being asked to help fund life-changing medical and practical equipment that can transform the lives of sick and disabled children in Gloucestershire.

As a charity, we can only make a difference thanks to you - as the money you raise goes directly to support the sick and disabled children who need our help.

So as you read about some of our recent fundraising successes we hope you're inspired to continue to support our cause.

Why not make a donation today to help change a child's life?

Whatever you do to help, we would like to thank you on behalf of the children who benefit.

Thank You

We are lucky to be well supported by individuals and businesses in the county. Whilst it is almost impossible to thank everyone personally who has contributed to our charitable projects; we are going to try! Visit our Thank you page to see more fundraising success stories.

Case Studies

Henry Powell

In the early hours of Saturday 5th October I went into spontaneous labour at home - I was 25 weeks pregnant with my first child, I was admitted to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and despite efforts to hold off the delivery of my baby, Henry was born 12 hours later. He weighed 2lbs 5oz (a bag of sugar!), quite a good size, and I was told that he would need to be transferred immediately into the Special Care Baby Unit because there was a high risk he would not survive.

Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of any charity and none more so than the kind people from the county who donate their time to support Gloucestershire's children's charity, the Pied Piper Appeal.

The new Friends programme is designed to bring together all the volunteers that support our charity on a regular or ad hoc basis, whether its event marshalling, manning the turnstiles at the rugby, baking cakes or selling raffle tickets.
