£155k Invested to date

The work you do is so important in providing funding for courses, training, learning and further development. It is especially important for nurses, who like myself function in the role of a middle grade doctor but, unlike my doctor colleagues, do not receive any funding for courses or further development.

It was a privilege to attend the Neonatal Hot Topics conference in the US and without your generous support, this would have placed an increased personal financial burden on me. Once again, my thanks to you and the foundation.

I am really touched to have the foundation’s support, and it’s an honor to be recognised as an Evie Dove Hero. The work you do is truly remarkable and I will make sure to let my colleagues know about your wonderful foundation.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome and for the incredible opportunity to be a part of The Evie Dove Foundation Heroes Team.

I’m truly excited to get started. I wanted to express my deep gratitude for the Foundation’s support, especially towards my postgraduate studies in allergy. Your funding means a lot to me and will undoubtedly contribute immensely to my educational journey.

I’ve received the formal offer letter and I’m thrilled to accept.

Once again, thank you for this incredible opportunity.

Warm regards,


This is a really amazing charity and think the work you do is really inspirational.

I also will recommend this lovely charity to my colleagues and encourage fundraising also.

Thanks again for the generosity of your incredible charity.


Thank you for a wonderful opportunity by allowing me to be a part of the Evie Dove Foundation.

I am deeply touched by Evie’s Story and hope other nurses like me benefit from the foundation and grow in their preferred field of nursing.

I feel privileged to be given a T-shirt, so thank you again to the foundation and I will promote the Evie Dove foundation to Paediatric nurses/doctors during handovers and study days.


I just wanted to start by saying a huge thank you for your extremely generous offer to fund my application.

This truly means the absolute world to me and I cannot wait to work with you all too and to help support the foundation!

I am truly at a loss for words. It is beyond incredible to see how much of an impact Evie is continuing to have on the world. Thank you so much! I am so beyond grateful to you all.


I just want to say a massive thank you, from the bottom of my heart for this. No part of me can thank you enough. Truly, truly thank you.

As I mentioned in my application, I plan to fundraise and do as much as possible for this wonderful family. Again, I just want to emphasise how grateful I am. I was speaking to my girlfriend about how I suddenly feel part of an amazing family, and I feel so happy to be a part of this wonderful foundation.

I am feeling incredibly grateful for the support I received from The Evie Dove Foundation which meant I was able to attend and present at the European Society of Paediatric Endocrinology conference, 2023.

My research is focused on investigating behavioural problems and the hormone oxytocin in children with conditions affecting the hypothalamo-pituitary axis, including craniopharyngioma and septo-optic dysplasia. The conference allowed me to raise awareness of the need to integrate psychological and medical care in paediatric healthcare.

Thank you again to The Evie Dove Foundation for making this possible.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Evie Foundation for granting me this opportunity.

Receiving this grant has not only provided me with financial assistance but has also boosted my confidence and motivation. Knowing that there are organisations like yours out there, willing to invest in individuals’ potential, inspires me to work even harder towards achieving my aspirations.

I am truly grateful for your belief in my potential and for the invaluable boost of confidence and motivation that this grant has given me.

Warm regards,
