ST GEORGE’S HOSPITAL CHARITY marked a busy and interesting year by publishing its first Annual Review this week. The review expresses the Charity’s thanks to all those people who have given so generously and fundraised so earnestly for St George’s over the year. It also shows some of the projects and schemes that the Charity has funded and which were completed during the year.

Highlights include the redesign and replanting to the garden in Lanesborough Wing (now called “Walk on the Wild Side” following a naming competition among staff in the hospital) and the complete refurbishment of the paediatrics outpatient department, now know as the “Dragon Children’s Centre”.

Of the fundraising feats, Gill Noble, Chairman of the Charity said “We’ve seen some incredible examples of nerve and spirit from staff, former patients, local businesses, local school children, and parents of our younger patients in their fundraising efforts. Whatever their motivation – wanting to say thank you, to give something back for the treatment they or their loved ones received, to recognise their local hospital – we’ve seen midwives skydiving, fun runs, sponsored bike rides, sponsored walks, charity football matches. We’re truly grateful to all those people who have shown their support to St George’s in this way.”
