We provide specialist nurses and support to seriously ill children. By donating, you can help more families access Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses. Help seriously ill children, young people and their families lead a more marvellous life with your Roald Dahl Story Day party.

Roald Dahl Story Day is an annual celebration of Roald Dahl’s marvellous stories from Matilda to Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. Schools, community groups, companies and individuals take part in parties across the nation to celebrate Roald Dahl’s stories and support our charity.
