Buttercup Day

The RNOH Charity’s Buttercup Walk will not be taking place this year. Instead, we are asking you to support the Charity by purchasing raffle tickets or one of our newly designed buttercup pin badges and join us in celebrating Buttercup Day on Thursday 27 June.

The theme of buttercups has been part of our fundraising for many years, from the very first Buttercup Day in the 1930s, to our famous Buttercup Walk, to the makeover of our Children & Young People’s Ward. On 27 June these flowers’ unmistakable colour will help us to raise funds once again.

Whilst it has been an incredible year in the life of the RNOH with the opening of the £50 million Stanmore Building, in which the Charity was able to fund all the equipment, plus a range of other enhancements, including a brand-new children’s activity centre, uplifting artwork, social spaces for teenagers and children, and two rehabilitation gyms thanks to our wonderful donors.

There is much more to come in terms of infrastructure. The hospital’s new Princess Eugenie House facility will consist of three main elements: a Veterans Rehabilitation Unit, a rehabilitation centre for people with acute spinal cord injuries, and a modern family accommodation unit for the parents and carers of our paediatric patients. A new orthotics and prosthetics facility is also due to be built in the near future. The RNOH Charity will be a vital source of funds for both of these developments.
