WHY ‘ROALD DAHL’S’ MAR­VEL­LOUS CHIL­DREN’S CHAR­ITY?

First News - - SPECIAL REPORT -

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.
