Proud to support

Could you give a little to make a big difference?

Everyone of us needs a little help, sometimes, and we all hope that it will be there when we need it. Charities provide vital support for people in need but they can only operate thanks to the donations of people like you and I. Mortgage Today has chosen to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and a well known cancer charity but you may have personal reasons for supporting other good causes, whoever you support you can be sure that they are grateful and we applaud you.

Proud to Support

In 1852, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) opened with just 10 beds and was the first hospital in the UK to offer dedicated inpatient care to children. In 2017 618 seriously ill children arrive, every day, at Great Ormond Street Hospital from all over the UK.

 

Over its 160 year history GOSH has attracted some notable supporters including Roald Dahl, JM Barrie, Poet Laureate Dr Robert Bridges, Princess Diana, Pele, Jonny Depp and Lewis Hamilton.

In April 1929, Sir JM Barrie gave the rights to Peter Pan, to the hospital, since then the children's classic has continued to benefit patients,

GOSH has been at the forefront of Paediatric medicine for more than a century and a half. In 1967, Great Ormond Street Hospital led the first UK clinical trials of the rubella vaccine. In 1970, the UK-wide immunisation of girls and childbearing adult females was rolled out for rubella. In 1979, GOSH surgeon, Professor Levinsky saved the life of Andrew Williams in a landmark procedure, the first bone marrow transplant carried out in the UK. More recently, in 2000, Great Ormond Street Hospital launched the world’s first gene therapy trials for children born without functioning immune systems. By 2011, gene therapy had cured 14 children with previously fatal forms of severe combined immunodeficiency. With help Great Ormond Street plans to continue to push boundaries with new and improved treatments and open a new clinical building, housing a surgery centre, a 16-bed isolation facility, a post-anaesthetic care unit, new neurosciences beds and modern inpatient facilities for children with respiratory conditions.
