Hot-off-the-press updates from the world of Premier Inn
17/08/2015 | Helping build Great Ormond Street Hospital’s future
As you may know, Premier Inn supports the life-changing work of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Back in 2012 we made a pledge to raise £7.5 million to help fund a new state-of-the-art medical facility at GOSH.
It’ll be called The Premier Inn Clinical Building, and is due to open in 2017. It’s part of the hospital’s on-going programme to redevelop some of its oldest buildings, replacing outdated wards with world-class facilities. The new wards will be more spacious and have room for a parent to sleep at their child’s bedside.
The building will provide much needed new in-patient wards, a new surgery centre, a respiratory centre and a specialist centre for children with severe skin conditions and infectious diseases. It will also enable the hospital to keep up with the growing demand for services and provide leading care for more seriously ill children from the UK and beyond.
How much have we raised so far?
Premier Inn team members have been very busy raising money, taking part in thousands of fundraising events, challenges and activities across the country. So far we’ve raised over £2 million and we’re always planning more fun events and finding opportunities to support our charity partners.
We also want to say a big thanks to our guests, who have been adding a donation when they book their room via our website. Through this alone, we’ve raised more than £1.2 million! Thanks so much – it really does help.
