Sick kids in hospital are in need of pyjamas so they can visit Father Christmas.

The mother of a boy who had cancer is running a campaign to give every child inpatient of a number of hospitals a pair of cosy new pyjamas for the meeting. Members of the public are being asked to donate new pyjamas.

Hospitals involved are: Croydon University hospital, Croydon Hospital at home, Royal Marsden Sutton, William, Harvey Hospital Ashford, St George's Tooting, Queen Elizabeth Woolwich, Demelza Children's Hospice, QEQM Margate, Evelina Children's Hospital London.

Pyjamas need to be brand new and must not be wrapped as they have to be checked by the induvidual hospitals.

Sizes are needed for both boys and girls from newborn to age 16.

Donations can be made from November 8 until December 8.

The pyjamas should be sent to: Glitterbox, 8 Roundway, Biggin Hill, Kent, TN16 3XZ.
