31 Media, organisers of The European Software Testing Awards, is really proud to have worked with some great charities to make a positive difference over the years. Supporting and donating to good causes, through our events, publications, and platforms is extremely important for us, as it creates increased awareness and exposure for the charitable efforts of many organisations. In 2013 we supported Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and raised an amazing £3,000. This donation went towards the construction of a single bedroom with en-suite for the Surgery Centre, which offered more dignity and privacy for patients and their families, helping to make their stay as stress-free as possible. Due to our continued relationship with GOSH we are delighted to announce that as of 2015 GOSH will be 31 Media’s chosen charity.
GOSH is one of the top five paediatric research hospitals in the world, treating children from all over the UK and abroad who are diagnosed with the most complex, life-threatening conditions. GOSH has over 50 specialities under one roof and receives over 240,000 patient visits every year from children all over the UK and abroad, who are suffering from the most complex, life-threatening conditions. The Charity exists to assist the hospital in delivering world-class care for its young patients and their families and to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illness. Your generous support will help the hospital to save more lives, develop new treatments, build new facilities and provide outstanding care to children and their families.
