Say hello to our Children's Appeal duck

Our duck is on a mission to build a new Children’s Department at Ipswich Hospital, but we need your help! You can support The Children’s Appeal by ordering a duck of your own!

Our ducks are safety approved from 0+ months and comes labelled with your choice of message (please choose when placing your order):

  • Merry Christmas – a quacking idea for the festive season
  • Christmas wishes – made with love by the National Elf Service!
  • World’s best teacher! – sure to become a class mascot too!
  • Welcome to the world – a lovely present for a baby shower or as baby’s first soft toy
  • I was born at Ipswich Hospital – a sentimental message for the new baby in town!
  • Get well soon – sure to raise a smile
  • Ipswich Hospital made me feel better – a fluffy friend for life
  • Happy Birthday – a gorgeous gift for any age
  • Thank you – a great alternative to flowers and longer lasting too
  • Thank you for supporting the Children’s Appeal – a duck for any occasion!

So whether it’s a gift for a loved one or just an addition for the toy box, our duck is a fantastic way to show your support for the Children’s Appeal.
