Our call to support OSCAR charity for children

30th January 2012

The OSCAR campaign for Great Ormond Street Hospital

OLDENDORFF CARRIERS is supporting the OSCAR (Ocean and Shipping Community Advancing Children's Health and Research) campaign, which is an innovative fundraising partnership uniting the International Shipping Community under a philanthropic banner to raise significant funds towards areas of urgent need at Great Ormond Street Hospital and its research partner, the UCL Institute of Child Health. We kindly ask our business partners to consider supporting this charity for children as well. 

The campaign is the inspiration of Phil Parry, whose son Oscar received lifesaving care at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The first objective of the OSCAR campaign is to raise £500,000 toward the remaining £2.2 million needed for the Seas and Oceans themed floor in our new hospital building. OSCAR is seeking companies and individuals across the shipping community to support the OSCAR campaign by making a gift of £20,000 or more.
