Evgeny Lebedev, owner of The Independent and the London Evening Standard, was humbled when he witnessed a child's heart surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Here, he writes about this inspiring experience.
The money raised with the help of Bernie Ecclestone and the Formula 1 ®community has played a significant part in the building of the hospital’s new Heart and Lung Centre as well as the redevelopment of the Surgery Centre and we are hugely grateful for their continued support.
Every year, we support Great Ormond Street Hospital by funding the purchase of replacement or additional medical equipment. This enables the clinical and research teams to take advantage of advances in medical science and technology to deliver better care to children and to replace old equipment that is no longer fit for purpose.
