Once complete, it will be one of the largest centres in Europe and will radically change the way we treat our most seriously ill and injured patients. We sold colourful hats, wigs, glasses, ties, belts, socks and tights in support of the Appeal and helped bring some colour to the hospital. We also sold cakes, T-shirts, badges and pens!
Becca, who volunteered at the event, said:
"I had a great time - I was inspired by the acts of generosity I witnessed and the appreciation demonstrated by patients for King’s staff. I watched a gentleman silently drop a £50 note in the donation bucket, not wanting to receive any attention. I spoke with a woman undergoing chemotherapy who was adamant about donating all of her coins to show her support. And I watched a four-year-old girl’s eyes light up after her parents bought her a pair of our colourful glasses following her hospital procedure."
Thanks to the generosity of our amazing supporters, we raised an incredible £3,035.85 over the two days at the hospital.
