Eurest, part of the Business and Industry division of Compass Group UK & Ireland, has announced Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity (GOSH Charity) as its new charity partner.
The year ahead will see the Eurest team working to raise over £25,000 for the charity, to support some of Great Ormond Street Hospital’s most urgent needs. These include pioneering new treatments and research, providing specialist equipment and supporting the essential refurbishment of the hospital to provide state-of-the-art facilities that match the hospital’s world-class care.
Eurest’s fundraising efforts were kick-started by Managing Director, Ollie Baker, who ran a sprint triathlon as part of Compass Group UK & Ireland’s dedicated charity month Magical May. The race took place earlier this month in Stratford-upon-Avon, starting the momentum for further fundraising ventures across the business. Other plans include a series of sponsored activities such as sky diving, abseiling off a client’s office building and taking part in baked bean bathing.
Ollie Baker, Managing Director of Eurest, said: “We are really proud to start our partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. The Eurest fundraising efforts are led by our nominated ‘charity champion’ Claire Swift, but we’re all really passionate about this charity and we’re committed to raising our ambitious target over the next year. Through our fundraising work we hope to be able to support GOSH which provides such invaluable care to children, young adults and parents across the UK.”
Sophie Powell-White, Head of Corporate Account Management at Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, said: “We’re so grateful to everyone at Eurest for choosing to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and we’re really looking forward to the exciting year of fundraising ahead. Their support will help make a real difference to the lives of seriously ill children from across the UK.”
