Our partnership with Butlin’s has got off to an amazing start! Since we launched earlier this year, we have seen team and guests across all three resorts getting involved to help support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Thanks to this amazing support, the fundraising total has already passed the £18,000 mark which means we can buy two, new state of the art defibrillators.
Defibrillators are vital pieces of equipment which are used to save the lives of critically ill children at the hospital who suffer cardiac arrest. The hospital urgently needs new defibrillators, especially in high-risk areas of the hospital such as the operating theatres, intensive care and high dependency units, to ensure that doctors and nurses can respond as quickly and effectively as possible if a child’s heart stops.
When a child’s heart stops working, every second counts. In these extreme circumstances, it’s vital that doctors and nurses act quickly to give children the best chance of survival. Thanks to Butlin’s amazing support, GOSH staff will have the best equipment at hand during clinical emergencies, giving young patients the best chance of survival.
Thank you so much for your support, you really are making a huge difference to the children at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
This year, Butlin’s are aiming to raise a fantastic £150,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. This will fund one of the hospital’s playworkers, who help to make children’s time at the hospital as stress-free as possible, and will also allow more, much needed, life-saving equipment to be bought.
Please keep up the good work so that even more children can receive the life-saving treatment and care they need.
We were delighted when the Butlin’s Entertainments team presented the charity with a cheque for £18,000 during a recent visit to the hospital.
If you would like to donate to Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity, simply text BUTL60 followed by £2 to donate £2; insert £5 to donate £5 or type £10 to donate £10 to 70070. So, to donate £2 you would text the following to 70070: BUTL60 £2.
