Hot-off-the-press updates from the world of Premier Inn

11/11/2016 | We did it! Together we’ve raised an amazing £7.5 million for GOSH

Back in 2012, we pledged to raise £7.5 million to fund a brand new wing for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. The vital new Premier Inn Clinical Building will see outdated wards replaced with brand new state of the art facilities for seriously ill children, giving patients and their families the comfort and privacy they need.

For the last four years we’ve been busy raising money to make this happen, thinking of fun ways to fundraise and taking part in thousands of activities across the country. Today, we’re absolutely delighted to announce that we’ve reached our £7.5 million target a year ahead of schedule!

We’re so proud of this achievement and would like to say a huge thank you for all your kindness and support over the last four years – we couldn’t have done it without you.

Simon Ewins, our Chief Operating Officer announced the fantastic news: “We’re delighted to have raised £7.5million for GOSH. I would like to say huge congratulations to all our fantastic team members who have made this happen over the last few years. We’re so proud to support this extremely important charity and can’t wait to see the Premier Inn Clinical Building open its doors to patients next year.”

“We are so proud to support this extremely important charity and can’t wait to see the Premier Inn Clinical Building open its doors to patients next year. Our focus now is continuing our fundraising efforts and hopefully unveiling some more exciting plans for the partnership next year – watch this space!”

Tim Johnson, Chief Executive at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said “An enormous well done to everyone at Premier Inn and Restaurants who have raised a fantastic £7.5 million. This is an incredible achievement which will have a big impact on the hospital and make a difference to seriously ill children from across the UK.”
