Every penny really does help a charity like The Murray Parish Trust!

Since 2014, the charity founded by actors Sarah Parish and James Murray in memory of their late daughter Ella-Jayne, has gone from strength to strength raising millions to support Emergency Paediatric Care across the South of England. As with all charities over the past two years, the coronavirus pandemic has affected our fundraising massively. However, our latest appeal to raise funds for an IMRI Suite at Southampton Children’s Hospital is as urgent as ever.

Holding an event this Christmas?

Whether it’s a Christmas Jumper Day, Festive Fair or Christmas Themed Cake sale, if you’d like to raise funds for The Murray Parish Trust this Christmas please do get in touch!
