Door to door fundraising

Why does Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity use to door to door fundraising? 

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity has successfully used a number of channels to encourage people to donate a committed gift in the last ten years, and these gifts have helped us to plan ahead towards the development needs of the hospital. Across the UK, we are running door to door fundraising campaigns all year round.

Professional fundraising agency

To do this we use a professional fundraising agency called Appco Group Support. Appco Group Support are one of the longest running and most experienced agencies in their field, only recruiting the very best fundraisers to work on our campaign.

Our fundraisers are intensively trained on our campaigns by both Appco Group Support and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, and follow strict guidelines set down by the Fundraising Regulator.
