Bad Hair Day 2017
You may remember, last year we partnered with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), a cause we are hugely passionate about and have even climbed up the Yorkshire Three Peaks for!
Bad Hair Day is back on the 10th of February!
We're supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH) again this year and asking you to do something silly with your hair at work or school on 10th February. Pop on a wacky wig, crimp your crop, mousse up a mean Mohawk and make a difference to the lives of thousands of very ill children who need your support.
Sign up on their website today to receive your free fundraising kit containing a collection box, poster, stickers and more to ensure your Bad Hair Day is a good one.
GOSH: a national hospital
GOSH is a specialist children’s hospital which means that patients are referred there from all across the UK. In fact, the majority of the patients are from outside of London. To show you how your support makes a difference, we’d like to introduce a very special little girl who’s spent some time at GOSH.
Soon after she was born, Lauren, from the West Midlands, was diagnosed with Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency Type 1 (LAD ), an incredibly rare condition which means the body can’t fight infections. When she was six months old, Lauren had a bone marrow transplant (BMT) at GOSH and needed to return for another life-saving BMT when she was eight years old. Lauren, now 10 years old, is a very happy little girl who likes to fundraise for the hospital and has previously raised money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity selling homemade loom band creations.
Dad Lee said: “Lauren is in the slow process of recovery. She’s happy and back at school and trying to get back to normal life.”
By taking part in Bad Hair Day and purchasing the GOSH Gloss White Touch, we can help more children like Lauren and her family. Your donations will go towards:
- Patient and family support accommodation for her family, so parents like Lee can stay close their child when they’re being treating at GOSH.
- The extensive redevelopment of cramped hospital facilities, to create more space so we can treat even more children from across the UK.
- Specialised life-saving paediatric equipment, so patients continue to receive world-class treatment.
- Research into improved treatments and cures for the next generation.
