 Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity

What's the challenge?

Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity raises money to ensure that the babies, children and young people treated at the children’s hospital in Glasgow receive the best possible care.

Every year 168,000 children from Scotland and beyond are treated at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow. Some children will visit just once for a minor injury, while others may spend many months or years at the hospital, fighting for their lives.  

Since 2001 our supporters have made a difference to the lives of tens of thousands of children and families; to date we have invested more than £25 million in the hospital thanks to their generosity, and we continue to work tirelessly to ensure that we can help even more children in the future.

GCHC would love a team to help put together some participant Goody Bags. The challenge will take place in the first 2 weeks in August (Midweek) at the GCHC Head Office (Meeting Room) Timing – 09.00-14.00. This is the charity's 6th annual Sponsored Walk (10K and 3K) and they need a huge amount of volunteer support to make it a success. In 2017 they had over 1000 walkers taking part to raise money for Scotland’s Sick Children. Can you and your team help make the participant goody bags? GCHC needs a team of 5 energetic and enthusiastic volunteers to help them purchase the contents and fill the bags for their participants. With your fundraising, they ask that this is allocated towards purchasing the goodies that are required for bag fulfilment. Once the items have been purchased, volunteers would then go to the head office to meet the GCHC Team and start the fun task of fulfilling the goody bags. With over 1000 participants to cater for, your help and support will be invaluable.
