How you can help right now

We're so grateful to everyone who raises money to support us. There are lots of ways you can raise dosh for GOSH from the safety and comfort of your own home or by following safe, social distancing guidelines. 

Do your own thing 

We have lots of ideas in our How you can help booklet (906.44 KB)  that can be used or adapted - whether that's virtually or following social distancing guidelines. Once you've got something in mind, let us know and head to our plan page. We've loved seeing how people have adapted their fundraising for us during this time, just like Casper and his family when taking part in the 2.6 challenge.

Casper’s seven-year-old son, Toby, was born with a heart condition, which resulted in him undergoing surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) after he was born. Casper, Toby and the family decided to get involved with The 2.6 Challenge, by copying 26 of the most popular viral TikToks and filming them all day. 

Casper said, “My nine-year old daughter is far cooler than me and had introduced me to a little of the TikTok phenomenon. The 2.6 challenge actually gave us an opportunity to get involved in a way we wouldn't have been able to previously: having some fun as a family and (in my case) making a massive fool of myself,” Casper says. The family started with a fundraising target of £260 and asked friends and relatives to donate £2.60. Before 10am on the same day they had already raised more than £1000 for GOSH Charity!
