A message from the Tick Tock Club Chairman as the appeal successfully raises £10 million

Tick Tock Club Chairman, Grahame Chilton, outside Great Ormond Street Hospital

I am delighted to announce that the Tick Tock Club appeal for the new Surgery Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital has reached its £10 million target. As demand for the hospital’s specialist surgery continues to grow, I am so pleased that the Tick Tock Club has played an integral part in creating a world-class environment for these young patients. Set to open next year, the new facilities will transform the hospital experience for thousands of children now and for generations to come.

"Since 2006, the club has raised more than £30 million towards the most urgent needs of the hospital. It has been a privilege to lead this appeal and I remain immensely proud of what we have achieved for so many critically ill children.

"Thank you to everyone who has helped to make this new Surgery Centre a reality. The support of the Tick Tock Club is invaluable and I look forward to hearing what challenge it will embrace next."

Ever onwards,

Grahame Chilton
Chairman, the Tick Tock Club
