It’s time for change…so let’s do it ourselves

It’s time for change in Croydon, it’s time for our children to have the facilities they deserve, it’s time for our Doctors, Nurses and their support staff to work in modern surroundings with the best equipment available to treat our unwell children, we’ve waited for long enough for government funding, it’s not coming, so let’s do it ourselves.

Join the fundraising effort, teamwork makes the dream work! Our team will support you in every way we can if you wish to run your own event. If you support our campaign you will know in your heart that you have done something for children who can never repay you and, in the years ahead, each time you pass the hospital you will remember this and you will feel good about it, so, please call us or visit our little shop, I guarantee an enthusiastic response.


Fundraising is getting into full swing for the CCT’s Lily Pad Appeal. Our Pop Up Unit in Croydon University Hospital is going well. We had a team of Lily Pad runners entered in the 10k Run on 15th July, skydivers and wing-walkers too. Thank you to Collins Construction, the Motorcycling Lodge of West Kent and Waitrose in Sanderstead for sending in wonderful donations towards the Appeal.


We attended the South Croydon Business Association Food & Music Festival on Sunday 24th June to help raise awareness and funds for The CCT’s Lily Pad Appeal. The event took place in the heart of Croydon’s Restaurant Quarter and is the town’s largest community event attracting over 12,000 visitors across the borough and beyond.


On Wednesday 4th July the Union of Catholic Mothers Addiscombe came together in support of The CCT’s Lily Pad Appeal. They organised a shared meal, prosecco evening and charity raffle. There was plenty of food and drink flowing and it was also a wonderful opportunity to welcome new members to the group. It was a great evening full of fun and laughter. Over the past four weeks, the Parish also held a Bingo night and a Tea and Coffee morning selling homemade cakes. ‘Our Lady of the Annunciation’ also held a second collection. Overall, a grand total of £1500 was raised.


What a fantastic display we had in the CVS Centrale Shopping Centre to raise awareness and recruit volunteers to help man our Pop Up Unit, in Croydon University Hospital for three weeks in July. For information or if you would like to get involved, please get in touch!
