Buttercup Walk 2009

 Luke Hamhill and Buttercup walk friends

A crowd of more than 500 people participated in this year's Buttercup Walk, raising money to enhance patient care at the RNOH.

The event, which was held on 28 June, was opened by celebrity guest and former patient of the hospital Luke Hamhill, better known for his role in the BBC drama Casualty.

Patients, families and their friends gathered at the hospital and participated in an activity, which is for some a personal challenge.

Matron's Lawn was packed with entertainment in the form of a bouncy castle, rides, stalls, live music, a fire engine from Stanmore fire station and a hog roast.

Everyone's loyalty, dedication and support has made a real difference to the patients' experience at the RNOH. We would like to extend our thanks to those who have made contributions and for supporting the Buttercup Walk.

The event derives from the Buttercup Day, which was established in the 1930's when the children picked buttercups from the countryside and sold them to raise money for the hospital.

Thank you once again for helping to make the day such a success and we hope to see you next year.
