We’ve had a bear-illiant afternoon today as pop star Brad Simpson, from Thevampsofficial, paid us a visit. The heart-throb took time out of his upcoming world tour rehearsals to visit our Play and Admissions Centre and design an un-bear-lievable bear sculpture, along with our patients, that could make it onto our The Big Sleuth trail.

Footy mad 14-year-old Joshua is just one of many of our patients looking forward to tomorrow’s derby between Aston Villa and Birmingham City. The passionate Aston Villa fan has a congenital heart condition which causes his aorta to narrow but he doesn’t let his condition get in the way of football.

Brave three-year-old Jake, pictured here with our play worker Caroline, thinks our staff are "angels without wings", but he especially adores Caroline, who was a huge source of encouragement for him before he had open heart surgery. Play is very important to all of our patients and as Jake's mum Grace says, if it wasn't for his new-found friend Caroline, Jake wouldn't be back to his usual,...

On World Haemophilia Day, say hello to eight-year-old Blake who was diagnosed with haemophilia A, aged just nine months. Blake’s condition affects his blood’s ability to clot – if he were to cut himself while playing, he would bleed for longer than somebody without the condition. Although Blake has to be extra careful when playing, it doesn’t stop him from being the lively lad he is! Our...

This cheeky chappy is looking forward to the Easter weekend, but like other children with Phenylketonuria (or PKU) - a metabolic condition - seven-year-old Ethan has to be very careful about what he eats, which often means no chocolate! Easter eggs are off the menu for many of our patients who have to follow special diets, so instead of donating chocolate this year, please consider giving a...
