archie in africa day - march 31st 2016
We created Uganda's first ever dedicated children's operating theatre...
We are delighted to have helped twin the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital with children's services in Kampala, Uganda. The result of which is ARCHIE in Africa Day! Find out more here.
It's back! The easiest fundraising event you can possibly imagine - do NOTHING for a month and make a huge difference for sick children! Get every man you know to join us, shave on Christmas morning and then DON'T shave again for a month! Simple - and you get a cool beard!
We 'Make the Difference' for local children when they are sick. We don't provide anything the NHS should, instead we provide more advanced or extra facilities, equipment, people and training. We also provide extensive support to families of sick children. If you'd like to know more, please click this link:

To The ARCHIE Foundation
Every year we impact on the healthcare of more than 175,000 sick children. We buy specialist equipment, support families, create amazing hospital environments, enhance staff training, buy toys, fund research, provide specialist staff and respond in emergencies. Our donors, volunteers and supporters make this possible and we're hugely grateful to every single one of them.
We exist to make a big difference for local children when they are sick, in hospital or in need of long-term healthcare. However, one day a year we ask those very children to support our life-saving surgical unit in Uganda through 'ARCHIE in Africa Day'. You can read more about this work on our site too.

Every year we provide a huge number of emergency grants to support children when they are sick. We also support larger grants to allow services to develop or advanced care to be given and we provide training bursaries for nurses. NHS Staff and parents can apply.
