    It seems highly unlikely they could or would accept such a gift. http://www.royal.gov.uk/LatestNewsan...gifts.aspx#2.2

    A donation to one of their charities might be more appropriate.

    Bear cottage

    Just a stone's throw from Manly, Bear Cottage is a children's hospice that was established in 2001. Bear Cottage helps families cope with the impossible - to care for a child who has a life-limiting illness. To care for a child who is unlikely to see their 18th birthday, or their ninth birthday, or sometimes even their first birthday.
    For the special kids that stay with us, there is no happy ending, no miracle cure.
    This is heartbreaking to think about. But that's only part of the story. Even though the outlook for these kids is a sad one, Bear Cottage is actually one of the most uplifting and inspiring places you could ever visit. Here, children laugh and play.
    Life is celebrated, lived to its fullest and also fondly remembered.

    Despite being run by a priest, they are non denominational I have had dealings with this service and they really do make a tangible difference

    Yes ^

    Bear Cottage is amazing! The comfort and joy they bring to children and their families in the child's final stage of life is just amazing.

    A care package for them would be incredible! Art supplies, movies, gift packs for siblings, pamper stuff for Mum and Dad.... So much that could be done to really bring joy <3

    Actually, I want to amend my suggestion.

    The staff at Bear Cottage.

    Undoubtably one of the hardest jobs ever to provide that kind of care. What selfless people they must be...

    The staff at any of these kinds of places deserve so much respect and admiration. Truly wonderful people.

    I'm going to compile a list of the places people suggest, and after however long, I'll start a new poll to vote on who help.
