Tulip Donations - Great Ormond Street Response

Dear Elaine

Lovely to speak to you just now. Thank you again for getting in touch and for your wonderful fundraising efforts. It was such a lovely surprise to hear about the incredible total of £1700- this can make such a huge difference for the patients, families and staff at GOSH- thank you for thinking of us!

Since the NHS is under such severe strain currently, a great many children are being transferred from hospitals across London to GOSH so space in those hospitals can be freed up to focus on adults with COVID-19. GOSH has doubled its intensive care capacity in the last two weeks to make sure we have room for the UKís most seriously ill children. The Hospitalís incredible staff are working around the clock, under huge pressure, to guarantee children at GOSH receive the care they need in these most difficult times. GOSH needs support more than ever at the moment, so supporters like you and your community mean such a lot to our charity. Thank you!

The fact that many of the people in your village have a personal connection to GOSH makes this even more special, so please pass on our thanks. If any of them would like to talk to us about other ways they can get involved, please feel free to pass on my details. We would love to hear from them.

Thank you again for your support and with best wishes,
