One Great Day's donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital

Posted by Ellandi on 8th Nov 2018

Established in 2014, One Great Day was initiated by parents whose son received care at Great Ormond Street Hospital.  One Great Day’s mission is to raise money and awareness for Great Ormond Street and other children’s health charities that play a key role in local communities. To achieve this, One Great Day organises an annual fundraising day in shopping centres around the country. So far, over £500,000 has been raised for more than 90 different children’s health charities. 

All our shopping centres registered for this GREAT event last June and we are, together with OGD's other partners, delighted to have been part of this exciting cheque presentation to GOSH.  The funds raised are being used to purchase two echocardiogram machines, which will play a vital role in helping to diagnose, monitor and aid treatment of heart conditions in children. 

Laura Savory, Head of Community Fundraising at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said: “We’re so grateful to everyone involved in the One Great Day events for their generosity and support. The money they have raised will help to make a real difference to seriously ill children from across the UK.”

Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals with the broadest range of dedicated, children’s healthcare specialists under one roof in the UK. The hospital’s pioneering research and treatment gives hope to children from across the UK with the rarest, most complex and often life-threatening conditions. Our patients and families are central to everything we do – from the moment they come through the door and for as long as they need us.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity needs to raise money to support the hospital to give children who need help the most the best chance for life. The charity funds research into pioneering new treatments for children, provides the most up to date medical equipment, funds support services for children and their families and supports the essential rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital. You can help us to provide world class care for our patients and families. For more information visit www.gosh.org
