Paul’s House, London Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters, we were able to contribute £1.1 million towards the costs of a much-needed new facility. We have worked with our friends at Young Lives Vs Cancer to establish a new home from home for the families of children being treated at University College London Hospital. Paul’s House, named after Paul O’Gorman, opened in September 2010. More than 200 children and teenagers with cancer are treated at UCLH every year. Only one third are from the London area, with the remainder travelling from all over the south east of England. Children can be admitted to hospital for months at a time. Parents naturally want to remain close at hand but hospital accommodation is very basic, with no facilities for families. This causes immense pressure on families, who can end up being separated for long periods.
