Molly Ollys supports children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to help with their emotional wellbeing. We provide gifts to individuals and donate therapeutic toys and books to both children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK.
We are professional and personal and never forget that those we help are going through extremely challenging times. We always strive to be empathetic and compassionate.
How We Help
We give gifts to children who have life-threatening illnesses to provide emotional support and help make their dark days brighter. Children and families can apply to us for something which they wish to have to support their journey. We have also developed a therapeutic toy lion Olly The Brave and a series of six story books about Olly’s experiences including diagnosis and treatment. We donate these to both children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK. In addition, we hold support events for families of children with seriously illnesses, and carry out bespoke projects working with the NHS.
We work with every child and family individually to ensure that the support we provide, whether it be a wish or giving Olly The Brave and his story books, is appropriate to their situation. Our own experience helps us empathise and we understand that those we help are going through extremely challenging times. We are always striving to help as many as possible, and to find new ways that we can make the dark days a little brighter for these children and their families.

OLLY THE BRAVE
Molly Ollys has developed a therapeutic toy lion called Olly The Brave and accompanying story books, to help support children through their illness.
Examples of our bespoke projects include 3 year funding for a Paediatric Palliative Care Consultant for Birmingham Children’s Hospital, and furnishing Magnolia House, a specially designed facility at the Hospital for palliative care, bereavement care and support.
Together we can help enhance the lives of these very brave and treasured children, and make their dark days brighter
