wish list

What is our Wish List?

We enjoy fantastic support from our local community which enables us to raise around 85% of our annual costs, but it's not just money that helps us continue to care for thousands of local patients and families every year. 

Our Wish List consists of a number of specific items that we use regularly in our day-to-day work which you may be able to ​give directly rather than donating money. From cellophane to create hampers for raffles to plasticine for children's play therapy sessions, there are a number of items you can choose to donate which will be a massive help to us.

The Wish List will be updated throughout the year so if there's nothing that you would like to donate now, please keep checking back.

If you are able to help out with any of the items listed below, please contact us at fundraising@renniegrove.org or call ​01442 890222.

Rolls of clear cellophane and Tissue paper              Help us create hampers and prizes we can be proud of for our hard-working volunteers, fundraisers and raffle winners.       
Bottles of wine/bubble bath/candles etc Various luxury items are always popular as treats in our hampers for raffles and competitions. All donations new, old, forgotten or re-gifted will be very much appreciated.
