Throughout Great Ormond Street Hospital's (GOSH) 165-year history, the support of you, our partners, has enabled the hospital to give seriously ill children the chance for a better future. Corporate support remains as vital as it has ever been.
Our corporate supporters have helped fund groundbreaking research, advanced equipment, child and family support services and the rebuilding of wards and facilities.
This month, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity welcomed 70 guests, representing 40 of our partners, to our annual celebration event to recognise our corporate supporters and their employees who drive our partnerships forward and lead the way in fun, engaging and hugely successful fundraising initiatives.
We were lucky enough to hear from Ian, a GOSH parent and an employee of former corporate partner Lockton Insurance.
Ian spoke to us about his son Malachi who needed multiple open heart surgeries at GOSH. He talked about his experience of the hospital, the staff he came into contact with and the support that he got from his colleagues to raise a staggering amount of money for the charity.
Professor Martin Elliott shared his experience of GOSH through his impressive career at the hospital and illustrated how important public support has been for GOSH’s history and just how exciting the future of pioneering medicine is looking thanks to the continued support of our corporate partners.

A part of GOSH's history
We are so grateful for the companies who have become a part of the GOSH family. We could not hope to achieve amazing results for children without the hard work and help of so many people.
From our incredible team of fundraisers, charity champions, corporate partners and volunteers, there are thousands of people who have dedicated their efforts to the success of GOSH.
A special thank you goes to the companies who have become a part of our history and will do so much to drive the success of GOSH in the future.
