Show your support and help us to raise money for vital projects by fundraising in your pyjamas from 17-31 October 2016! There are endless event ideas, but don’t forget to register if you want to get involved.


Pyjama Party is back and we’re asking you to wear your pyjamas to work, school or any activity you have planned during our fortnight of fun in pyjamas. Running from 17-31 October 2016, it’s time to ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor – or join – you and put the fun back in fundraising!

All you need is your pyjamas (and maybe some slippers) – we’ll supply everything else when you register today for your free Pyjama Party pack.

Help us raise awareness and funds for the one in six people in the UK who are affected by a neurological condition by wearing your pyjamas with pride.

Remember to email us your photos and share them on Facebook and Twitter using #PyjamaPower.

The National Brain Appeal raises funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London. More than 12 million people in the UK suffer from a neurological condition either from birth, through injury, or a slowly developing illness. Click here for more information.

Last year all funds raised from Pyjama Party were directed to our Operating Theatres Appeal. We pledged to raise £4 million as part of a £24 million upgrade of the existing theatre suites and the creation of two new theatres. The money raised will fund a new specialist Complex Spinal Theatre. We have also funded a new flexible education and office facility for the neurosurgeons, which has now been in use since April – the space enables clinical and research discussions and training. The final part of the project we have supported is a new ward to accommodate patients after surgery – and building work is already underway!

However there is still a huge demand for more space, equipment and research to be funded here at Queen Square, which benefits patients across the UK.

You can help us fund projects just like this from the comfort of your own home, at work or school. It’s easy. Just pop on your pyjamas and throw a party!

How the new facilities will benefit all neurosurgical patients
The National Hospital is leading the research into implanting stem cells into the spine which will restore the use of a patient’s paralysed limb (commonly caused by road traffic accidents) Alongside this they are pioneering surgical techniques for nerve repair operations. The next step is to marry the research and the surgery, with a specialised spinal operating theatre, state of the art equipment and appropriate post operative facilities.
