2016: Great Ormond Street Hospital
Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is an international centre of excellence for child healthcare; it’s often the first name that springs to mind when anybody thinks of children who are ill, usually desperately so.
We raised over £625. Our original plan was to buy gifts for the children who were in hospital at Christmas but, and understandably so, the hospital has incredibly stringent criteria about what can and can’t be given. In the end we decided to make a financial donation which meant that, although the children didn’t benefit from the gifts, the hospital benefitted in its entirety.
For an insight into the fantastic work the hospital does, particularly in this age of austerity and financial cutbacks, please visit the Great Ormond Street Hospital website at www.gosh.nhs.uk.
