Fundraise at school

Schools fundraising is hugely important to Guy's and St Thomas'. Donations from schools play a vital part in helping us to provide better care, equipment as well as the little extras that can make their stay in hospital more comfortable for our patients, but it also gives us a chance to reach out to the next generation of Guy's and St Thomas' supporters.  Fundraising is also really fun and can unite the school in a common goal!
