Georgina’s Walkie Talkie challenge for GOSH

IThomas in GOSH on Sky Wardn a few weeks, TechMarketView Chief Analyst, Georgina O’Toole will be scaling the 824 steps (36 floors) of the 20, Fenchurch Street (also known as the Walkie Talkie). She is taking on the challenge to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Children’s Charity.

Some of you will already be aware that Georgina’s younger son, Thomas (pictured right on Sky Ward), has been under the care of the Orthopaedic Department at Great Ormond Street Hospital for much of his life. As such, it is a cause close to her heart.

Last year was particularly tough as Thomas spent much of the year undergoing leg lengthening and leg straightening in an Ilizarov frame (also pictured!). It is testament to how wonderful the hospital is (and to Thomas) that he managed to get through it all with a smile. Georgina talks often of the amazing facilities and staff, who provide all-round care, treating the whole child and showing great empathy for the family.  There is no doubt that the staff and facilities are fantastic for children. But there is always so much more that could be done. Georgina is hoping she can raise enough to make a little difference. 

GOSH Walkie Talkie challengeGeorgina has set up a JustGiving page for donations ( Please consider digging as deep as you can to support this very worthy cause. Georgina tells us that she will be motivated by the knowledge that there will be a glass of fizz awaiting her on the in the Sky Garden, but also by the knowledge that she is doing her little bit to help GOSH.
