Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity celebrates 15th annual Christmas Carol Concert

Patients at the 15th annual Christmas Carol Concert

On Tuesday 9 December, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity held its 15th annual Christmas Carol Concert at St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge.

The star-studded event, hosted by Myleene Klass, raised £229,000 and featured festive readings from hospital patients, staff and celebrity guests Jeremy Paxman, Tom Cullen, Tamsin Egerton, Penelope Wilton and Sir John Standing.

The enchanted evening, sponsored by travel experts Trailfinders, also included traditional carols and live performances from the Choristers of Thomas’s Battersea, the London Fellowship Band and the Band of the Welsh Guards, which helped to capture the Christmas spirit.

More than 700 guests gathered to raise vital funds for the charity’s Look Inside appeal, which helps to fund the hospital’s life-saving imaging equipment. 

The equipment will help to improve diagnosis, monitor progress and help make critical decisions about treatment as the hospital continues to deliver world class care to its patients.
