Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity

Opera Holland Park is proud to be friends with Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity - the charity set up in Roald Dahl's name to help very poorly children live fuller, happier lives.

The Marvellous Charity have been fundraising for a Roald Dahl specialist children's nurse who is based in Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. Just like Macmillan Nurses for cancer, Roald Dahl specialist nurses help children come to terms with their severe brain or blood conditions, giving care, support and excellent advice when its needed the most.

Too many parts of the UK just don't have a specialist nurse for children with severe forms of epilepsy. This spring they managed to put a nurse, Siobhan Hannan, into Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. She's already made a huge difference to the hundreds of children in the area with severe epilepsy.

To the families, she is priceless. She shows parents how to adapt to having a child with severe epilepsy. Where the child is older, she shows them how to take care of themselves. She gives plain advice about how to choose between mystifying treatment options and she is always there for the family, preventing emergency re-admissions and keeping babies out of intensive care.

During the 2012 season run of Fantastic Mr Fox on the Yucca Lawn in Holland Park you helped Opera Holland Park and the Marvellous Children’s Charity raised £3,100 for this wonderful cause. Thank you very much for all of your help and your donations and we all look forward to seeing you again next year at Holland Park.
