I'm sorry to be cynical but Smyths are not being upfront about exactly how much per bear is going to GOSH. Could literally be pennies per bear.
Give a fiver directly to GSOH. At least you'll know exactly how much you are giving to the charity.
Agree that this is a brilliant cause.

Having had personal experience of PICU (Paediatric Intensive Care Unit) for my child; and over the xmas/new year period, and all of the teams that have helped and continue to help, there is no better cause.

They have their own range, and I have picked up their Penguin this year. It's very good and like a Jelly Cat quality

Most parents with sick children would pay the earth to help their childs …Most parents with sick children would pay the earth to help their childs recovery,So let us all contribute and buy this lovable bear , so generously made for smyths to help all sick children at gosh ,


I don't want to put a dampener on this but please don't buy this bear believing that GSOH are getting the £5. It is only the PROFIT that goes to GSOH which will be nothing at this price. If you want to give to this great cause then far better to give directly as a poster above has already said.
What a nice thing all profits going to the charity aswell(unicorn)

Well done Smyths toys for making it 100%.
and a huge thank you to everyone working at the hospital. Merry Christmas. You rock!
You can buy them from a premier inn.
Unfortunately there probably won't be any profit at this price.

We could buy it and give it to mission Christmas so twice the benefit xx

Also possible to donate direct on the gosh site and skip the middle man.
Is the £5 discount come from Smith's or the profit that should be generated
Good find op, thanks for sharing!
If this is already discounted by 50% , the donation has already been cut by £5 so how much profit is left to go to Great Ormond Street?

Round of applause smyths...... I'm buying two

Good post but it is only the profit for donation
We are in Great Ormond Street Hospital now, been here allost 4 months for my 4 month old and looking at a few more months in here atleast.

Hats off to Smyths for helping out Gosh, every parent in here appreciates it. Bit confused myself though because the bears are sold in the hospital for a donation, so you choose how much you want to pay. Recommended donation price is £5 - money all goes to GOSH

Nice idea, but in my opinion, they would have been far better stating "£2 (or whatever) from the sale of each bear will go to GOSH".. Like others, I doubt that much 'profit' will actually be donated to the hospital.

It can be either, gross or net. So agree, it is confusing and not clear.

I've never understood why an NHS hospital requires donations?? Why do only children's hospitals require donations? And only one in London??
Genuine question and as a parent of a child with on going health issues, I'm not saying they aren't a worthy cause, but doesn't the NHS already fund them? Or is this a trust?
They do treat sick children from all over the world so is the money going to treat them because our NHS don't cover the rest of the world sending kids to that hospital?
I would want to know all this before donating.

I wonder if this deal would still be as hot at £10 without the sale. GOSH would get more money but I am guessing they are shifting stock as it wasn’t selling at full price.
Great ormand street must be richest hospital in the U.K. with all the fundraising
what about hospitals in other parts of the country

GOSH is the most commonly known children's hospital in London and arguably one of the most specialised which is why you hear about them the most. Evelina and Royal London Children's Hospital also ask for donations albeit via their hospital charities.

The NHS is funded but most of the charity donations are used to purchase things loike Christmas presents or play material which isn't really covered by a "Department Budget" within the NHS.

Also donations to NHS charities are used to purchase state of the art equipment such as the high profile surgical robots purchased by one of the largest London NHS trusts this year. Or even things like rennovating wards to make them autism or dementia friendly. Or even creating brand new departments which aren't always fully funded by the government or the NHS.

You can search these things by looking into the hospital charity affiliated with the NHS trusts. Hope that clears a little bit up
