Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Achievements
GOSH 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.
tri for life is delighted to have donated over £150,000 to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Sponsorship money raised at The Woburn Abbey Triathlon has been used to build a waiting area and an interview room in the Lung Function Unit, for children requiring specialist tests for a range of conditions affecting their lungs including cystic fibrosis, asthma or those in need of bone marrow transplants. Both of these rooms are essential in helping Great Ormond Street Hospital to provide the world class care their families deserve.
“Our corporate supporters from PageGroup, Spectris, Lazard and Thomson Reuters had a brilliant time taking part in the Olympic Distance and collectively raised a staggering £35,000! Their fundraising will fund new medical facilities so we can treat more patients, pioneering research so we can solve medicine’s greatest mysteries, advanced equipment for treating the toughest conditions and child and family support so we can make life in hospital as normal as possible for young patients and their families.” Louis Childs, Fundraiser, GOSH
