Buttercup Walk 2007
The 2007 Buttercup Walk has been the most successful so far, with our regular Buttercup members, their families and friends braving the rain to take part. So far more than £40,000 has been raised and the money continues to come in. This year saw the most imaginative ways of completing the 1km course, and also many of our patients progressing from previous years and walking the course.
We would like to thank our celebrity guest, Peter Wingfield for giving us his time and doing such a marvellous job of drawing the Grand Raffle.
We would also like to thank all the companies who made donations of raffle prizes, St. Johns Ambulance and the local Scouts for helping out on the day.
The Buttercup Walk was named after “Buttercup Day” which was established between the first and second World Wars, the hospital held a Buttercup Day in June each year. During the mid 1930’s children would pick buttercups from around the Hospital site for sale in Central London. With the coming of the second World War the day was postponed; never, until it was revived in 2003.
We will keep you updated with our fund amount and look forward to seeing you all again next year.
With best wishes
