We’re delighted to have received a $10,000 (circa. £8,300) grant from the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation.

The MDRT Foundation gives to charitable organisations worldwide, demonstrating the generosity, service and impact of MDRT members.  It is a global, independent association of the world’s leading life insurance and financial services professionals.

The grant from the MDRT Foundation will be used to help fund the training of two Paediatric Palliative Consultants at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.


Co-founder of Molly Ollys, Rachel Ollerenshaw explains how this money will help; “Molly Ollys funded BCH’s first Consultant in Paediatric Palliative Medicine for three years, before the NHS took the role on. We know first-hand how crucial these Consultants are in helping children with terminal illnesses to have the best quality of life – even if there is not quantity.


We are very grateful for this grant which will help improve the palliative care of children and young people treated at the hospital.”

The grant was officially awarded to the Charity on 28th February by Michael Bibb who has been a member of the MDRT for many years.

Mr Bibb explains why he put Molly Ollys forward; “I have been a supporter of Molly Ollys for a number of years. I have seen how the work the Charity does brings joy to these extremely ill children. Being a father-of-four, I cannot imagine how devastating it must be to have a child with a life-threatening health condition. It is so important there is the right treatment and care for these children whose lives may not be long.  MollyOllys will be using this grant to make a real difference to these children and their families.”

This year, the MDRT Foundation will award over $1.6 million (£1.3 million) in MDRT member-endorsed grants to over 300 charitable organisations worldwide. For more information, visit

Every donation, whatever size, helps a seriously unwell child


Current data suggests that 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every day, and that 1,900 children under the age of 14 in the UK are diagnosed each year.

More children are diagnosed with a range of other, often rare, conditions and illnesses that are also life-threatening.

Molly Ollys is committed to helping as many of these children and their families as possible, and works hard to raise the necessary funds to be able to help those who contact us.
