Christmas Stocking Appeal 2023

Help bring the magic of Christmas to seriously ill children like Emmie

Every child should have the chance to be at home with their families for Christmas Day.

By donating to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) this Christmas, you’ll be helping fund vital resources and support that Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) needs to get seriously ill children one step closer to home.

For children who need to stay in hospital over the Christmas season, your support can help bring Christmas to GOSH. That means you could help fund the Play team, who support children through their treatments and recovery; or parent accommodation close to the hospital so loved ones can stay by their children.

Four-year-old Emmie (pictured above) spent her first Christmas at GOSH after being diagnosed with a rare type of childhood cancer. This year, she's looking forward to celebrating Christmas at home.

Celebrating 25 years of the GOSH Charity Christmas Stocking Appeal!

Help celebrate this incredible milestone by sending your own special Christmas stocking message to the children, families and staff at GOSH when you make your donation.

These messages will be displayed throughout the hospital and will help make it feel like a home from home over the festive period.

Simply use the box at the top of the page to send your Christmas stocking message today.
