The Omaze Million Pound House Draw
We're really excited to have partnered with online fundraising platform, Omaze, to launch a groundbreaking initiative over the last 6 months - the Million Pound House Draw!
Meet the winners
GOSH mother Heekyoung Jin, 38, won the fifth Omaze Million Pound House Draw - a stunning five-bedroom house, just around the corner from Wimbledon’s famous Centre Court, worth £3,500,000.
Her elegant new home serves up a host of luxury features including a large reception hall, spacious sitting room and dining room, a family room and study, an open plan sitting and dining space with kitchen, a huge master bedroom complete with en suite dressing area and bathroom, three other bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms, an integral double garage with interior door and beautiful two-tier gardens.
All stamp duty and legal fees are covered and Heekyoung has also been given £20,000 in cash to help with running costs. She is free to either live in the house, rent it or sell it.
You can watch Heekyoung, and her husband Tom, find out they have won a multi-million-pound dream home in Wimbledon by visiting Omaze's website.
An incredible donation
As well as making Heekyoung and her husband Tom instant multi-millionaires, the draw has also raised crucial funds for GOSH Charity to support Great Ormond Street Hospital’s most urgent needs.
Every day, around 600 seriously ill children from across the UK come to Great Ormond Street Hospital for life-changing treatment from the hospital’s dedicated team of experts who specialise in some of the most rare and complex conditions.
The innovative fundraising campaign with Omaze has provided GOSH Charity with a donation of £500,000 – money that could help to fund pioneering research, state-of-the-art medical equipment, vital support services for children and their families and the essential rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital.
Supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital
“Despite all the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, our mission has stayed the same: to help transform the lives of the seriously ill children who arrive at GOSH every day needing life-saving care. The pandemic has had a significant impact on our ability to fundraise so, the money raised by this Omaze campaign will make a real difference. We’re so grateful to Omaze and to everyone who has taken part for this fantastic donation.”
The charity’s support of the hospital has been more important than ever over the last year, during the COVID-19 pandemic. At what is already a stressful and worrying time for children and their families coming to GOSH, the pandemic has placed an even greater burden on their lives. And, at times of peak pressure in the wider NHS, GOSH cared for more children transferred from other London hospitals, working tirelessly to continue delivering the life-changing care these children urgently needed.
