Why we're pledging
The Sick Children's Trust's mission as stated on their website is to aid the recovery of sick children by supporting the whole family. Keeping families together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children, and the Trust enables families to do so by providing free, high-quality ‘Home from Home' accommodation, as well as emotional and practical support, to families with sick children in hospital in the UK. The Sick Children's Trust is working to a future where every family with a seriously ill child in hospital will be able to stay together, just minutes from their child's bed during their treatment.

Gownboys hopes to raise as much money as possible to help families stay together during their child's treatment. Our aim is to not only raise money for the Sick Children's Trust, but to also create a learning experience for the House while doing so, to ensure that all Gownboys truly understand the cause which they are raising the money for.

In addition to organising a House charity sweet sale and other activities around House to raise money, each Gownboy will write a letter for Post Pals. Post Pals is an organisation that helps “post a smile on a sick child's face” by the sending of cards, letters, and emails to seriously ill children and their siblings in the UK. Gownboys plans on making this a regular activity and hopefully by doing so individual Gownboys will develop meaningful relationships with these children.

As a sideline project, Gownboys will also be setting up a House site at Free Rice (http://freerice.com/content-group/gownboys-charities-week), which donates a certain quantity of rice to the UN World Food Program based on how successful a pupil is at a subject specific Quiz!
