Great Ormond Street Hospital

The Peter Cruddas Foundation has supported Great Ormond Street Hospital for over three years, first by being a member of The Tick Tock Club and at Christmas 2008 funding 3 Christmas Parties for the children and young people making Great Ormond Street Hospital their home for Christmas because of their illness.

Great Ormond Street Hospital is a specialist children's hospital and a world leader in paediatric medicine, treating children from across the UK and beyond, suffering from complex, life threatening and life shortening conditions.

Each year, the Trust has over 200,000 patient visits from children ranging in age from premature babies to late teens; of these, over 42 per cent of the children are under three years old and 63 per cent require 24-hour intensive care.
