Our commitment to Charity
Theodora Children's Charity
Since 2012 Theatretrain has supported Theodora Children’s Charity. A British charity that helps sick and disabled children across the UK. Founded in 1994, the charity focuses on improving the lives of children in hospitals and hospices through music and entertainment.
“At the Theodora Children’s Charity we believe that all children deserve laughter. The mission at the heart of our work is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.”
Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that every sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
A Giggle Doctor visit isn’t just about one magical moment, it can have a significant and lasting impact on a child’s well-being and perception of the hospital environment.
In November 2018, in a one day event, we raised £62,738.92 for the charity
In 2020, during the pandemic, we became a partner of Young Minds.
They are the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health.
They want to see a world where no young person feels alone with their mental health, and all young people get the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what.
