Ducks and odd socks help to raise money for Children in Need

November 19 2018

The team at North East London NHS Treatment Centre may have looked a little odd on Friday (16 November) but it was all for a very good cause.

The team wore odd socks, shoes and theatre clogs and funny ties and hats to raise money for Children in Need - the charity that since 1980 has raised more than £950 million for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

There was also a fundraising Duck Race Sweepstake, watched remotely by the team, on the official Children in Need Facebook page, which no one won so every penny went to the charity.

Hospital Director John O’Brien said: “Even at this busy time of the year, the team always find ways to raise funds for charities doing such worthwhile and invaluable work. It shows the same dedication they give to the centre and to their patients.”
