You can raise funds in almost any way you choose, from selling handmade crafts to taking part in any sport that you’re into. There really is no limit to the ways you can give to COSMIC.

Our fundraisers never cease to amaze us, and by getting involved you’ll be joining a community of people helping to transform the lives of patients and families on PICU and NICU at St Mary’s and Queen Charlotte’s Hospital.

Whether you’re a brilliant baker, prefer the glamour of a charity ball, or have a different idea in mind we’re excited to hear about your event.

Get in touch with us at and let us know what you’re planning and we’ll support you every step of the way.

For more ideas to help you get your fundraising off to a flying start download our Fundraising Pack.

Here are some of our favourite fundraising ideas:

• Hold a COSMIC Bake Sale

• Take on a COSMIC Challenge

• Get quizzical and organise a pub quiz

• Celebrate – if you have a birthday or other special occasion coming up why not turn it into a fundraiser?

Cosmo the Superstar

We are very proud to introduce you to Cosmo the Superstar – our COSMIC mascot!

Cosmo is a special little boy who once came to our PICU, and because he did everything he was asked to do by the nurses and during his stay, took his medicines, did his physio, he transformed into a Superstar with bravery as his special power. Cosmo flies around our ward to make sure all the children that come to us are brave just like him and makes lots of friends who all become superstars too!

Not only will Cosmo now feature in our ward, he is also going to help schools and clubs to fundraise. His power pack always needs to be kept full to help him fly around to help sick children, and COSMIC has lots of different ways for schools and clubs to help fundraise and keep him fuelled.
