GOSH families treated to a private party at The Disney Store

Christmas came early for eight patients from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) on Sunday 7 December when they attended an exclusive private party with their families at London’s Oxford Street Disney Store.

The event was hosted by Tamzin Outhwaite and Mickey and Minnie Mouse were also on hand to help spread the Disney magic.

The patients enjoyed a private shopping spree, face painting, and the chance to write their own letter to Santa. Younger guests were also invited to dress up as their favourite Disney character.

Chenny Nkemaka, Mum of Zikora, aged three, who is a patient at GOSH said: “We had a fantastic time at the Disney Store party and it really helped us/me to get in the festive spirit.

“It was brilliant to meet Mickey and Minnie and lovely to spend time with other families who had been through similar experiences.”

Disney's support at Christmas

The Disney Store has supported Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity at Christmas since 2008. As well as throwing the party which was attended by eight families, Disney Store has also donated 800 soft toys to the hospital’s patients.
