GOSH! What a Result!
14th March 2022
To mark International Book Giving Day 2022, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH) set up an initiative to gift donated books into the hands of sick and disadvantaged children.
Across Monaghans and Trebbi, we had a fantastic response to our request for donations and are thrilled to announce that our gift to Great Ormond Street Hospital was a grand total of 466 books!
Great Ormond Street Hospital is an extraordinary hospital that provides invaluable treatment, care and support to very sick children, as well as the associated challenges of working to improve young lives in wider society.
In addition to the fantastic work they do, childhood literacy is shown to be one of the most effective tools for disadvantaged children to be able improve their life prospects, so this was a great chance to make a difference in more ways than one.
