Spotlight on supporters
46 fearless fundraisers bravely abseiled
100ft down the Golden Jubilee Building at
King’s College Hospital in September 2019.
The fearless abseilers included staff from various
departments, our very own Chief Executive, Gail
Scott-Spicer, and some very special patients and family
members. Together they raised an incredible £11,000.
The Elena Effect
During her short but happy
life, Elena Betts spent a
total of eight months as an
in-patient at King’s and staff
soon became like a second family
to her, her brothers Thomas and
William and her parents Mel and Dan.
Taking inspiration from her positive outlook on life,
the Betts’ family launched The Elena Effect – a joint
drive to highlight the importance of organ donation
and raise money for King’s High Dependency and
Paediatric Intensive Care Units. The Elena Effect
has already raised over £10,000 for King’s College
King’s will always
hold a very special place
in our hearts, not only for the
incredible care that Elena
received but for the care that
we received as a family.”
Thank you to
To every single one of our supporters,
volunteers and fundraisers, we would
like to say a resounding thank you.
Donations to the Charity are supporting
world-leading academics, researchers and
clinicians in their fight to treat and solve some
of the biggest health challenges facing humanity.
These vital donations help fund life-saving
equipment, life-changing research and better
facilities – above and beyond what the NHS
can provide. Our supporters are crucial to this
work – we couldn’t do it without you. In addition,
we acknowledge our gratitude for the legacies
received during the year.
