Get involved, stay home and have some fun

We're so grateful to everyone who raises money to support us. There are lots of ways you can get involved, start fundraising and make a difference from the comfort of your own home. In a world that's more virtual than it's ever been, you can fundraise on your own, with the people you're living with or virtually with your friends and family.

If you need some inspiration, we've got lots of ideas and a FREE fundraising pack that can be downloaded to get you started. It's full of ideas, advice and support from our dedicated team. Get creative with them and see what you could do at home with those you live with or virtually with your friends.

Stay safe whilst fundraising

The health and safety of all of our supporters is a priority. Due to the current challenges posed by COVID-19 we want to make sure that you're keeping safe whilst planning your event. We have stopped all of our door-to-door fundraising activity, as well as fundraising in private sites. All fundraising activity undertaken by members of the public must adhere to government guidelines around events and social distancing

The difference you'll make 

As Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) plays a role in the national response to the COVID-19 crisis by treating more children from hospitals across London, resources will become increasingly stretched. 

The hospital needs the support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH Charity) now more than ever, so it can continue to deliver the best, life-saving care for seriously ill children. 

Immediate support from the charity focuses on responding to equipment needs, supporting staff health and wellbeing, and helping the hospital meet demands on its patient and family support services. 

Whatever shape your fundraising takes, we think you're amazing and we want to say a huge heartfelt thank you for the support you're giving GOSH, now and always. 

They need us and we need, now, more than ever.
