Then. Now. Always.

We needed you then, and we need you now.

Back in the 80s, we kick-started decades of fundraising to give seriously ill children the chance of a better future. Thousands of people from across the UK united to support Great Ormond Street Hospital’s (GOSH) Wishing Well Appeal, which became the largest ever appeal of its kind.

Now, we're celebrating 30 years of support. Over the years, people like you have helped to fund wards and medical facilities, state-of-the-art medical equipment, and support services such as parent accommodation.

Now, 618 children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH every day. 

Many of our young patients have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. They need the latest medical equipment and facilities, and they need us to find better treatments, and cures. You can help them by funding potentially life-changing research.

Organise an 80s fundraiser, show your support on social media, challenge yourself with a sporting event or make a donation.

They will always need us. And we will always need you.
