Team Florence

You won’t believe how amazing the care is that Florence has been receiving at Great Ormond Street Hospital. During her stay at ICU she has had a nurse by her bedside literally 24 hours a day 7 days a week. They’re not even allowed to go to the loo without someone to take over their position! They do 12 hour shifts, which never ceases to amaze me. The medical machines and drugs that Florence has had access to are out of this world expensive and we would never have been able to pay for the care she’s been receiving, let alone the parent accommodation we’ve been able to use for the almost 3 months we’ve been here so far. Basically GOSH is awesome.

To show our appreciation we have decided to raise money along with our families and friends and have joined up to do the Race for the Kids. This is a 5k fun run on Sunday 6th June in Battersea Park in aid of the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. The money raised will go into the hospital’s redevelopment project, which includes building new facilities to treat more patients as well as toys, machines and even beds to help the patients and their families to get through some very tough times.

Check out what it’s all about here
And if you’d like to donate some money please sponsor Team Florence here.

And just to be clear, it’s a fun run, so that means I can walk it... right?
