Fundraise at work

We work together with companies to deliver mutually beneficial partnerships. Every pound you raise is directly spent supporting patients.

Supporting Guy’s and St Thomas’ at Christmas

Our corporate partners play a key role in making Christmas a special and memorable time for our patients and their families, and of course our amazing staff. As you can imagine, Christmas 2020 is going to look slightly different this year, however, the support we receive from corporate partners will still have a huge impact on our patients.

We have worked closely with the hospital to establish what is possible this year and most importantly, what is safe and needed by our hospitals. Sadly, due to infection control and limited storage space at the hospital, we are unable to accept donations of toys or facilitate visits this year.

As always, our priority is to ensure patients are supported in the best possible way. With this in mind, we are asking our loyal corporate supporters to give financial donations this year. Every donation will go a long way in supporting areas across our hospitals that will most benefit patients and staff this festive season.

To speak with one of our corporate fundraisers to find out how your company can support this Christmas, please contact us at info@supportgstt.org.uk.

With your support we can ensure Guy's and St Thomas' continues to be an extra special place for our patients and their families. We hope your company will consider donating to our hospitals during what continues to be an incredibly challenging time.
