The Great British JimJam is a fun way to support The Walton Centre and help raise funds for urgently needed Relatives’ Accommodation to support families whose loved ones are receiving lifesaving treatment at this nationally acclaimed Brain Hospital! 

Whether it’s a sponsored sleepover, mufti-day at school or wearing your PJs to work there are lots of fun ways to get involved!  For how to get involved please click here.

The Walton Centre needs to raise £500,000 through its ‘Home from Home Appeal’ by December 2014 to provide Relatives’ Accommodation for families whose loved ones are undergoing lifesaving treatment at the hospital.  We want to provide eight en-suite bedrooms plus a living room with kitchenette, laundry and quiet room.  This will give relatives the comforts of home while staying close to loved ones undergoing lifesaving treatment in our hospital.

Sophie's Story

My lovely mum Jan died in The Walton Centre in April 2011, following a brain aneurysm. She received the most wonderful care but sadly could not be saved.  In the short time she spent in Intensive Care, my dad, brother and I kept vigil by her side, taking short breaks in a visitors’ room where we tried to snatch a little sleep in armchairs. We met other relatives who were also spending long days and nights in the unit, which is why we want to help this amazing hospital to build accommodation for families like ours.  I would like to ask you to join me in taking part in the Great British JimJam to raise money for the Home from Home Appeal.  

Thank you!
