About Theodora Children's Charity

All children deserve laughter…

Since our very first visit to Great Ormond Street Hospital in 1994, our Giggle Doctors have given joy and laughter to thousands of children during their treatment in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres. Our reach has continued to grow and now our 25 Giggle Doctors visit over 33,000 children each year.

Theodora Children’s Charity was founded by two brothers, in memory of their mother Theodora Poulie. When one of Theodora’s sons was hospitalised for many months as a child, she brought joy, laughter and storytelling to his bedside through her regular visits. Theodora inspired her sons to bring magical moments to all sick and disabled children. Now our Giggle Doctors give laughter to thousands of children across the country receiving medical treatment.
