WHY ‘ROALD DAHL’S’ MARVELLOUS CHILDREN’S CHARITY?
Roald Dahl was a brilliant storyteller. You might have read some of his books, like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda or James and the Giant Peach. During his life he was a big supporter of vaccinations for children (injections to prevent you getting a serious illness such as measles), he gave his time and money to ill children, and he even helped invent new medical treatments. He believed in kindness above all things. Lots of his stories are about children doing amazing things, even when life was really tough. This is the idea behind the Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity – to help seriously ill children and their families in their times of need, so they can do amazing things too.
