Charlie’s Surprise

The “Charlie’s Surprise, Surprise” programme aims to provide some joy to children who have been through a very difficult time in their lives. 
Every term we ask schools to nominate any children who they feel would benefit from a little surprise from our mascot “Charlie”. These children may have been through a bereavement, illness, problems at home or another kind of personal struggle.

We find out a little about the child’s interest and then our HEY CU fairies work their magic and try to arrange a fantastic surprise for that child. The surprises are usually presented in front of the school in an assembly with the recipients knowing nothing about it.

Our past surprises have included…

  • Theatre tickets
  • Hull City Football tickets
  • Hull FC/KR Rugby Tickets
  • Cinema Tickets
  • Toys & toy vouchers
  • Visits from local Footballers, Rugby players & Boxers
  • Family days out
  • Visits to places of interest
  • Shopping vouchers

If you would like to nominate a child please email our Surprise Coordinator, Rose James at If you would like to donate something to our “Surprise, Surprise” programme then we would also love to hear from you
