TechMarketView for GOSH: The countdown is on!

Thomas at GOSHThe countdown is on!

There’s only four days to go until TechMarketView’s Chief Analyst Georgina O’Toole, along with her sons William (14) and Thomas (10) will be taking part in the RBC Race for the Kids. And she’s absolutely delighted that some of the TechMarketView team – Tola Sargeant, our Managing Director, and Marc Hardwick, Research Director – will be participating with their families too.

The 5k sponsored run (or jog, or walk, or wheel!) is in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Some of you of you will already be aware that Georgina’s younger son (pictured) has been under the care of the Orthopaedic Department at Great Ormond Street Hospital for much of his life… indeed coinciding with Georgina’s time with TechMarketView.

Most recently the hospital supported Thomas and the rest of the O’Toole family through the difficult decision to have Thomas’ leg amputated. Without the whole-child and whole-family care of this wonderful hospital, the journey could have been so much harder.

Georgina has always spoken highly of the hospital for the amazing care it gives, thanks to the fantastic staff and facilities. Now TechMarketView is looking to raise some money to support the charity and make a difference to other children being treated there.

Thomas will be completing the 5K on his new prosthetic leg. Considering he only underwent his amputation in June, and only received his new leg in the middle of August, that is pretty impressive! And surely worth a few pounds’ donation?

GOSH_RBC_Race for the Kids_logoWe have set up a JustGiving page for donations – TechMarketView for GOSH - so please consider digging as deep as you can to support this very worthy cause.
