Edmund Services Christmas Donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital
December 14th, 2020
As we head into the festive season, it’s time once more to celebrate and give gifts. This year, Edmund Services is giving £1,000.00 to a charity that’s really close to all of our hearts, and one which we think does incredible work: Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
GOSH, formerly the Hospital for Sick Children, is a children’s hospital located in the London Borough of Camden. It’s a part of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, the largest centre for child heart surgery in the UK, and one of the largest centres for heart transplantation in the world. It has worked to protect the most vulnerable children in Great Britain since its founding in 1852, and has thrived thanks to the patronage of VIP fundraisers like Queen Victoria, Charles Dickens, and Roald Dahl.
It’s hard to overstate the importance of GOSH. Every day, 619 children and young people from around the UK travel there looking for aid, and some of the brightest minds in medicine work to find new answers to complex problems. According to GOSH’s own site: “This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential.” We think this is a cause worth supporting, and we hope our clients agree: the money we have contributed this year is money earned providing them with great facilities management, and we consider it made on their behalf. In a very real sense, this is our gift to our clients this year.
