Welcome to Bristol Children's Charity


We would like to inform you about some important changes that have taken place within the Bristol Children’s Charity. As you are aware, we have always been committed to maximising our impact and efficiency in supporting the needs of local children living within the BS postcodes.

Due to the retirement of our fantastic Chairman, Granville Jenkins, it has become necessary for us to undergo a slight restructure. As many of you know, Granville has been a driving force behind our charity's mission and vision.  His leadership has been invaluable and taken the charity to new heights.

The committee and trustees have appointed me as the new Chair.  Over the next few months, this restructure will involve redistributing responsibilities among existing members of the committee and sub committees.

Whilst this change may bring some adjustments, I want to reassure you that our commitment to our mission remains unwavering. I know that with the dedication and expertise of our volunteers we will navigate this transition smoothly and continue making a positive impact on the lives of Bristol's children in need.

Please rest assured that we will keep you informed of any further developments regarding this restructure. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or Steve O’Neill (Vice Chair)

On behalf of the children, thank you for your continued support.

Best regards,
Jess Harvey
