The inspiring 7-year-old taking on a charity challenge for Manchester Children’s Hospital

Witness the heartwarming story of 7-year-old Isla-Jai, a beacon of kindness, as she orchestrates a magical fundraiser to bring joy and essentials to the young patients at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

In a display of selflessness and compassion, 7-year-old Isla-Jai as decided to continue her mission of bringing smiles to children’s faces by organising a special fundraiser for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital charity.

Last year, Isla-Jai’s generous spirit led her to sell a collection of her toys and purchase over 60 selection boxes for the children’s ward at Royal Preston Hospital.

This year, with her toys being relatively new from her recent birthday, Isla-Jai brainstormed alternative ways to make a positive impact.

Making an Impact In Manchester

Undeterred, Isla-Jai has set her sights on a 1-mile jog, skip, and cartwheel challenge scheduled for Saturday, 2nd December.

The young philanthropist hopes to raise funds, toys, toiletries, and high-street vouchers to contribute to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital charity.

Isla-Jai’s mother expressed, “Isla is an incredibly kind-hearted and caring little girl. Despite never wanting for anything herself, she is determined to make a difference in the lives of others. This year, her focus is on the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, and we hope to bring a little more magic to these children during the festive season.”

A Kind Hearted Girl Making a Difference

To support Isla-Jai in her noble cause, the family has created an Amazon wish list with items the Children Hospital will give to the kids in dire need.

The wish list includes items such as toys, face masks, and toiletries, all of which will contribute to making the children’s Christmas at the hospital a bit more magical.

While acknowledging the ongoing challenges and struggles faced by many, the family emphasises that even a small contribution can go a long way in brightening the spirits of children spending the holidays away from home.

How You Can Help

Residents in the Eccleston area or nearby locations who wish to contribute to Isla-Jai’s initiative can find the Amazon wish list on the family’s social media profiles.

The family is also willing to travel to collect donations, ensuring that the gifts reach their intended destination at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Isla-Jai and her family are grateful for any support received and believe that the community’s generosity will make a significant difference in bringing joy to the children facing health challenges this holiday season.

Let’s join hands to make Isla-Jai’s fundraiser a heartwarming success and spread some much-needed cheer to those who need it most.
