Gifts for GOSH

By Emily.Andrews on 17th December 2019

On a rainy afternoon last week, we channelled Father Christmas and delivered sacks full of toys to the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) charity, around the corner from Octopus Group headquarters.

Rather than take part in an office-wide Secret Santa or gift exchange, we prefer to donate to our charity partner, GOSH, when the festive season comes around.

As well as cash donations, the childrens’ hospital encourages the donation of toys, games and supplies for families.

This year, our employees donated several bags of presents and supplies. Items for donation were placed under the office Christmas tree, before being taken to the GOSH offices near Russell Square in London.

Supplies requested included babygrows, pyjamas, baby blankets and travel-sized toiletries.

It was heartening to see that the reception area at GOSH was already packed to the rafters with precarious piles of gifts.

Here we are dropping off the stuff…

Don’t we look full of cheer!

Doctors and nurses at GOSH give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. If you’d like to donate this Christmas, the hospital has a full list of the items it most needs.
