Every year, PaedSoc selects local charities involved in child health and aims to raise as much money for them as we can. We raise money by holding bake sales, selling tickets to social events, and organising raffles at balls. Have a look at what they do below, and click on the images for links to their websites to find out more information.

Haydn's Wish (The Haydn Wileman Memorial Trust) has been set up by Haydn's parents in his memory, to raise awareness of the links between childhood asthma and potentially fatal allergies.

Tens of thousands of kids like Haydn spend their childhoods struggling to breathe, and their parents may be completely unaware of the potential dangers of undiagnosed allergies. In Haydn's case, it was an unknown allergy to the peanuts in his breakfast, which had such devastating consequences.
Whoopsadaisy was set up by Nina, after she witnessed the positive impact Conductive Education had on her son Christopher.
