M.R. Scrase is proud to support this children’s charity as it aims to highlight the profound effects illnesses can have on the lives of our younger generations. Raising Smiles doesn’t receive any government funding, instead relying on its magazine sales and sponsorships to source toys and gifts for children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. They also work alongside medical staff, as well as music and play therapists, to bring a smile to children who have been hospitalised as a result of their illnesses or injuries.

If you’d like to help support this worthwhile cause, please talk to us or contact Raising Smiles directly on 0800 772 0824 or visit https://www.raising-smiles.org/
