Supporting charity Sun and Stars appeal, West Middlesex Hospital

Ealing 135 has a rich history of raising money for local charities.  Whenever funds allow, we donate the profits from our key annual events (the Spring Fair, Christmas Fair and Nearly New Sales) to a local good cause.  Charities are nominated by members and voted on by the committee. We aim to support smaller local charities, who might otherwise not come to people's attention, or larger charities that have particular activities within the borough.

At the last committee meeting, members of Ealing 135 voted to support the Sun and Stars Appeal as our chosen charity over the next year. Below you can read a little more about the campaign.

The children’s inpatient wards at West Middlesex Hospital provide care to over 8,000 babies, children and young people every year. This is continuing to increase, with a quarter of the local population under 18 years of age.

While the hospital staff on these wards provide excellent care, the environment in which they are treated requires significant improvement.
The aim is to transform these wards to create a child-friendly, welcoming, calming environment with better facilities, specifically designed to make being in hospital easier for children and their parents.

The appeal needs to raise over £100,000 from the local community to transform these wards. Specifically, the appeal is aiming to:

  • Provide better play facilities
  • Bring entertainment and distraction to the bedside
  • Create a dedicated area for teenagers
  • Transform and improve facilities for parents

No doubt many of our members will have first-hand experience of the children’s wards at West Middlesex hospital. We hope you’ll agree with our committee members that this is a really worthwhile charity to support over the coming year.
