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 social distancing.
The difference you'll make
GOSH patients and families need your support now more than ever. Children still need to come to GOSH every single day, but their parents are bringing them to the hospital under extraordinary circumstances.
Infection control restrictions only allow one carer per family to be in the hospital and that one carer must be strong for a worried child who is treated by people in masks and protective clothing. They also have to plan their travel and accommodation under the same lockdown rules as the rest of us.
What is already a stressful time is even more challenging. Whatever shape your fundraising takes, you can help us to deliver the practical and emotional support parents and families need, now more than ever.
Thank you for the support you're giving to GOSH, now and always.
