Prudential is latest business to Give to GOSH

In the last moments of the record-breaking Give to GOSH appeal, Prudential has become the latest business to dig deep with a fantastic donation for the hospital.

Prudential joins a large number of corporate supporters who have played a key part in the appeal’s phenomenal success.

The Give To GOSH appeal has raised more than £3.5 million since its launch in November 2015, making it the most successful Christmas appeal in the history of the Independent and the London Evening Standard newspapers. 

'The cherry on top' of a phenomenal appeal

Tim Johnson, Chief Executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, said: “It is wonderful that we are still receiving donations, right until the very last moments of the appeal. People across the country have pulled out all the stops to support the Give To GOSH appeal and as we approach the final stage, this donation from Prudential, which will go to patient and family support programmes, is the cherry on the top!

“This has been a phenomenal appeal and surpassed all of our expectations. All the donations that have been made will help to give seriously ill children the best chance for life and we are all eternally grateful.”

Supporting the hospital's most urgent needs

The money raised by the Give to GOSH appeal will support some of the hospital’s most urgent needs. These include the creation of a specialist unit helping children in urgent need of a heart transplant, and funding research programmes which aim to find new cures and treatments for children with rare diseases. The Give to GOSH appeal will also help to fund the patient and family support programme at the hospital, and the Louis Dundas Centre for Children’s Palliative Care, for patients who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
