Welcome to the Mad Hatters party!

cat-small

Well what a fabulous party that was! Lots of very happy smiling faces everywhere we looked which made it all worthwhile.

We will be working very hard this week to put the photos up and will put some updates on Facebook as soon as possible. Thank you for coming along and supporting us and all of the kind comments on Facebook and lovely emails.

We hold an annual event at the Marriott Hotel in Portsmouth, and we have a hard-working team of volunteers who help make these events happen for the benefit of children with cancer and other serious illnesses.

Our successful fundraising and generous supporters have enable us to provide gifts and equipment for children in hospital and special treats, gifts and visits or help with granting wishes for children with life limiting conditions.

Please have a look around the site for all of the background information, you will need to log in to look at the photos in the gallery of the last few years events.

About Us

The Mad Hatters Parties are events organised to lift the spirits of children with cancer or serious illnesses and disabilities. We have been running the parties since 2001 and they are held at the Portsmouth Marriott Hotel. All of the funding for this is raised from donations, and any funds remaining are used to provide equipment for the children's wards and to give gifts and special trips for children who are very seriously ill. The next event is in 2015, admission is by invitation only as numbers are limited. We are looking for a sponsor for the 2015 party!

Untitled-1The parties seem to get bigger and better each year and the photos from the last few parties are now in the gallery, to check them out you will need to register if you haven't already done so, if you have then log in. You'll then see a button labelled "Hatters Gallery" in the left-hand column. There is also lots about the parties on the Portsmouth News website and you can use our links to find all of their articles.

Our Work and Website

DreamflightWe work hard to ensure that the funds we raise are used to the benefit of those children the party was always meant to help... and we were able to cover the cost of a trip to Disneyworld Florida on Dreamflight for Curtis.

We would appreciate any comments you may have, and you are welcome to send any pictures you would like to add, you can always e-mail us through the contact us page.
