What we do

The Daisy Garland charity was set up in November 2004 to keep Daisy's memory alive and to help other little children like her.

We fund an increasing number of Ketogenic Dietitians who work in National Health Hospitals treating hundreds of children with intractable epilepsy.

We are the only UK charity funding Ketogenic Dietitians - each dietitian costs up to £45,000 per annum. If you think you could help us fund our next Daisy Garland Ketogenic Dietitian go to HOW YOU CAN HELP. Be in touch today.

Calling All Schools - The Daisy Garland Charity Needs You

Mar 27th, 2010

With three new hospitals on the waiting list for a Ketogenic Dietitian this year we need to work doubly hard to raise the necessary money to fund three new placements. Can you help us reach our goal?

We are asking schools if they would adopt The Daisy Garland as their charity of the month or year. In 2009 Belmont School in Mill Hill held a sponsored swim and raised just under £4,000. If just 5 schools did something similar we would be well on our way to raising the full salary for one Daisy Ketogenic Dietitian. Imagine if 20 schools took part in some form of fund raising activity The Daisy Garland would be able to give the three hospitals the dietitians they so badly need.

Some ideas ….

Have a Smarties Party – then fill the empty Smarties tubes with small change.

Pyjama Day – ask your teacher if you could wear your pyjamas to school for a day.

Don’t say a Word – choose a word you mustn’t say for a day, anyone saying that word must pay a fine!

Flower Power – collect small change and make a daisy flower in the playground.
