Donating shares to charity

Thousands of people across the UK own shares which they are not sure what to do with. They might have been left to you by a relative or given to you following a company privatisation or take over. Why not put yours to good use by donating them to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity?

How will my donation help?

Every day, children with some of the most complex and rare illnesses come to Great Ormond Street Hospital. With your help we can continue to support ground-breaking research and provide our wards with leading edge equipment, while our redevelopment project will allow us to treat more children than ever before. Donations also allow us to accommodate parents of our patients, meaning they are never too far from their sick children.
