Croydon University Hospital – The Lily Pad Appeal
The Chartwell Cancer Trust proudly supports the new dedicated children’s ward at Croydon University Hospital, which officially opened on 10th May 2022. The new £7 million state of the art facility provides better care for thousands of children and young people who are admitted to hospital.
The Chartwell Cancer Trust has been supporting oncology families in Croydon since 2016. In 2018, the charity set up the Lily Pad Appeal to raise £750,000 for the new and modernised Oncology Unit, a crucial part of the planned overhaul to integrate the Acute Paediatric Services. This was achieved in February 2022, not only the charity’s greatest achievement, a fantastic milestone and the largest donation in Croydon’s history, making a lasting difference and legacy to the experiences of young people living with cancer.
