Funding Initiatives

At the heart of The Chloe Mansfield Fund is our promise to keep Chloe’s spirit alive, and our mission to help the children and families of GOSH. 

We have experienced, firsthand, the challenges involved in coping with a very sick child in hospital. We have also benefited from the incredible professionalism, care and dedication given to Chloe, and to our family, from the entire GOSH team. 

Chloe’s Fund seeks initiatives that will support the children and families of GOSH in a permanent, long-lasting and unique manner. We seek and develop projects that will have a direct, and often immediate, positive impact for these children, but which may be overlooked in a climate of finite resource.

Below are the ways in which The Chloe Mansfield Fund has supported children and families at GOSH.

Ad Hoc Initiatives

AFC Wimbledon Football Match

August 2018

The Chloe Mansfield Fund arranged for a cystic fibrosis patient and his father to attend a home game at AFC Wimbledon against Coventry. The young football fan and his father enjoyed a pre-match meal and then watched the match from the Director’s Box. The young patient was also given the opportunity to choose the “Man of the Match”, have photos with the team, and go on a behind-the-scenes tour of AFC Wimbledon. A special day out for an avid football player and fan!

A visit from Bertie & Boo

December 2015

The Chloe Mansfield Fund organised for children’s entertainers Bertie & Boo to pay a special visit to the Respiratory Ward. The clowns brought a spark to the children’s day with magic tricks, animal balloons and music.

Camp Suisse

August 2015

The Chloe Mansfield Fund arranged for a teenage respiratory patient and his older brother to participate in a week long activity camp in the Swiss Alps. The action-packed camp was filled with opportunities to develop skills in sport, languages, team work, culture and outdoor pursuits, all in a fun, enriching and safe environment. Enabling the older brother to accompany the patient on the trip meant that the young boy had a full-time carer, and somebody to help administer medication. Accommodation and flights were provided.

Michael McIntyre at the O2

October 2015

The Chloe Mansfield Fund arranged for some parents of children in the Respiratory Ward to attend a Michael McIntyre comedy show. We found that having a sick child in hospital brought challenging pressures on family life, and so we wanted to find a way to help these parents spend some quality time together, and to have some fun.


Voluntary Work

As part of our mission to help the families at GOSH, Thuy is the Parent Representative for PICU and NICU. The purpose of the role is to give a voice to families in these intensive care units, and to relay feedback to the Intensive Care Board, whether positive or otherwise. As part of this role, Thuy volunteers in ICU and meets families there once a month. She also attends the Intensive Care Board monthly meetings, which comprises Trust management and clinicians.

In addition, Thuy is also part of a team which oversees the PICU/NICU Ward’s Donation Fund. The Fund manages smaller charitable donations which have been given directly to PICU and NICU.
