Join the Christmas Stocking Walk

This December, organise a sponsored Christmas Stocking Walk and help bring a child at GOSH one step closer to home.

Christmas Stocking Walk

Every child should have the chance to be at home with their families for Christmas Day. By donning your best Christmas stockings and organising a sponsored walk, you’ll be helping fund vital resources and support that GOSH needs to get seriously ill children one step closer to home.

What? Whether on your own, with your friends, family, colleagues or classmates - organise a sponsored walk to help raise vital funds for GOSH this Christmas. Wear your favourite Christmas socks to help get everyone in the holiday spirit!

When? Choose any date in December to suit you.

Where? Whether you hold a walk in your local park, with your child's school, or with colleagues in an area local to your office - the choice is yours.

How? There is no set distance, so you can choose whatever works for you! Once you've decided when, where and how long your walk will be, you're ready to kick start your fundraising by setting up your JustGiving page.

Henry's GOSH story

GOSH patient Henry smiling and surrounded by stockings.

At five weeks old Henry was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), after he had been struggling to breathe and severe issues with his windpipe and trachea were discovered.

Henry spent a total of 15 months at GOSH. Including his first birthday and two Christmases. Mum, Shevonne, says: “During the 15 months we spent in hospital with Henry, we felt completely informed and at the centre of our child’s care. The collaboration across disciplines at GOSH, and with us as parents, was phenomenal.”

Your support can help more children like Henry get one step closer to home this Christmas.
