Never Far Away: Essex Appeal

Seriously ill children want to be metres from mum and dad, not miles. Never far away. 

Keeping families together during difficult times is vital

Our new Never Far Away: Essex Appeal aims to raise £300,000 to cover the running costs of three patient and family accommodation facilities at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for a year. 

We are asking the people of Essex to get behind this appeal and help build a community of fundraisers to support seriously ill children like Austin.

There are plenty of ways you can get involved. Whether you can spare one or 100 hours, raise £10 or £100, your support will make a real difference and help us raise vital funds.

Not from Essex? We'd still love to hear from you, email or complete our form and we will be in touch.
