Dylan Davies and Family
“In the short time we were in the PICU, they became like family and we will never be able to thank them enough.”
"This is for Dylan's legacy."
"We are supporting St George's because we have a little girl at one of the Marmalade nurseries who was treated in the paediatric ward."

"We are so happy to be a Champion for this appeal, our customers love to support this beautiful cause."
"There are no words that can fully comprehend the gratitude my family have for the NHS from start to finish."

"We are all really excited to be the first of the Charity’s Champions and we are looking forward to working with the
Charity team over the next year to support this worthwhile campaign. We will be asking our clubs and societies to come up with some fun and interesting fundraising activities."
“One of Broomwood Hall's family’s youngest was diagnosed with a Wilm’s Tumour, Stage 4 (kidney cancer) in March 2020. She was cared for fantastically at
St George's and is now all clear, as her family know from experience, their paediatric facilities are very poor having been designed 50 years ago and this is why we are supporting this appeal."
"Peabodys has been with St Georges for many years and has seen how hard it is for the staff and patients alike. We thoroughly believe in this hospital
and love to be able to support the Charity in raising the vital funds needed. It is our pleasure to pledge to raise 5k over this year! "
Chris & the LGIM Asset Allocation Team
"We hope our contribution can change lives and help more children and parents who go
through the ordeal of possibly life-threatening diseases."
Sorsi e Morsi
"Like the rest of the NHS, St George's is an absolutely incredible organisation.
All we have to do if we need fixing is to get down there and they do the rest. St George's Hospital, "we love you."
"I'm so inspired by the staff here at St George's Hospital, both at our PICU centre and also our wards, they do amazing jobs everyday.
My task of jumping out of a plane is relatively easy compared to what they do so the reason that I am doing this is because of their inspiration to me.'
"St Georges is a local charity it does a lot for our community and Primark Tooting wanted to give something back."
“I’m incredibly proud of St George’s – our staff work amazingly hard, sometimes in the most difficult of times, and I want to give something
back by supporting the Time for a Change Appeal.”

The Charity aims to raise £5m in support of transforming children’s services at St George’s Hospital. The joint intention of the Trust and the Charity is that funds generated by the Charity will contribute to the expansion of PICU and its associated family spaces, along with the refurbishment of Nicholls, Pinckney and Frederick Hewitt wards. Through this Appeal, there is a small chance that we will raise more money than we need. If this happens, or if for any unforeseen reason we are unable to proceed as originally intended with the projects outlined, gifts will be used to support other projects that benefit children’s services.
