Evelina London Zip
Why we need your help
As part of the London Fire Brigade’s 150th year anniversary celebrations, we’re setting up a zipwire across the River Thames on 2nd December 2016! This is the first time this has ever been allowed, so it's truly a once in a lifetime experience, which is open to only twenty fearless fundraisers.
We are aiming to raise £1million towards the vital development of Evelina London Children's Hospital.
Andy Roe, Deputy Assistant Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade, has devised this daredevil stunt to say thank you to the hospital for saving his son's life: "My little boy Zaki was critically ill a number of years ago and Evelina London has been treating him ever since. I want to raise as much money as possible to say thank you for the care he received."
Evelina London is the only children’s hospital in England to date to be awarded an ‘outstanding’ rating by the Care Quality Commission.
We are a local children’s hospital for South London, as well as a national specialist referral centre for rare and complex children’s conditions, such as cardiology, neurology, metabolic disorders, and renal failure.
Evelina London has an excellent record of research activity, which is both nationally and globally recognised. We are one of the top performing children’s hospitals nationally in recruitment to clinical research studies. However, the hospital does not currently have a dedicated children’s clinical research facility and urgently needs one to help grow our clinical trials and research programmes.
We need £2.7m to help create Evelina London’s first dedicated Clinical Research Facility to pioneer more procedures that will save children's lives.
