Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity: Charity of the Year 2018

Every day brings new challenges at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). 

Every day, 618 children and young people from across the UK arrive. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs. And every day is a chance for you to make a difference. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. 

A better future for seriously ill children starts here. Join us at the start line.

By joining the GOSH team you will be part of the biggest group of riders in the biggest sportive in the world’s greatest festival of cycling. But more importantly the money you raise will help fund vital new parent and family accommodation. When a child is critically ill and rushed to GOSH to receive treatment, the last thing a parent should have to consider is where they will sleep and how they can afford it. Giving families free accommodation close to the hospital allows parents to have some peace of mind and a welcoming and supportive stay just a few minutes’ walk from their child’s bedside. 

Our new accommodation houses will provide a ‘home away from home’ for parents from across the country. By joining Team GOSH you will make a vital difference to this new building that will support families for years to come.  

You can join our team for just £20 and help us to make life at GOSH for patients and families as normal as possible. We ask that you raise a minimum of £600 in sponsorship and in return you’ll receive:

  • GOSH team cycle jersey
  • Top tips from our cycling champion Victoria Pendleton
  • Training rides 
  • First class fundraising ideas, incentives and materials
  • Dedicated support from our friendly team
  • Post-ride reception with refreshments and massage

Join the GOSH team and together we will ride for a better future for seriously ill children.
