Your Challenge

Invite your child’s friends – and yours – to play and donate at your GOSH Charity Play Date.

Bring kids together for summer fun!

When? Pick any date in July that works for you.

Where? Anywhere! At home, in a garden, in the park or at school or nursery.

How do I fundraise? Ask for a small donation from your Play Date guests. Your Play Date pack will include some QR codes, taking guests straight to your Play Date fundraising page to make their donation. Don’t worry, there’ll be a collection box for any change too!

How big does it need to be? Play Dates come in all shapes and sizes. Every amount raised, no matter how big or small, makes a big difference to GOSH.

Whether you’re hosting for toddlers or school-age kids, at home or at nursery, school or a children’s group, you’ll receive a free Play Date pack and access to a downloadable kit.

Play time that can change lives

The money raised at your GOSH Charity Play Date will help GOSH Charity fund the GOSH Play team.  

The Play team, fully funded by GOSH Charity, provides a vital part of their care, helping children make sense of their treatment and recovery through toys, activity and play.  

It helps the children feel in control, calm and informed about what’s happening during their treatment and recovery. And, most importantly, play allows them to be children during what can be a difficult and worrying time.  

*Any donation(s) received in relation to the GOSH Charity Play Date event(s) will be used to fund the Play services at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust. Our target for this appeal is to raise £101,250. In the event that additional donations are received over and above our target and/or the needs of the hospital or patients change, we reserve the right to redirect funds for use against the hospital’s most urgent needs.
