It’s Jammies for July time!
There’s nothing like pulling on a new pair of soft winter jammies to put the smile back on the face of a child who’s been traumatised and hurt.

It’s a little bit of heaven … and the magic starts with you, if you’ll send a donation now to support our Jammies for July drive.

We need pyjamas of all shapes and sizes for the children and teenagers at St Mary’s Children’s Home.

We care for 62 children, and it’s hard to fit the cost of jammies and other winter essentials like blankets, socks, vitamins and immune boosters into our monthly budget.

But your online gift to Jammies for July, sent by clicking here, will clad our children in cosy winter jammies!

The pyjamas are as loved for the comfort and happiness they bring, as for what they keep away.

By putting our children to bed in soft jammies and warm covers – and keeping our home dry and supporting their immune systems – children are much less likely to get chest infections.

It means less expense on doctors and medicine – and sick in bed – and more time at school and studying.

So please click here now if you’d like to put a child in new jammies. Your gift will help keep their spirits up – because who doesn’t love new jammies in winter!

Thank you!
