I believe it was due to the deep affection many people feel for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital; and the detailed planning and sophisticated marketing techniques used to communicate the fact that the hospital was in trouble.

  • The Wishing Well Appeal: What makes a good appeal chair? by Marion Allford Women of course are every bit as likely to make an effective appeal chair as men, but the term 'chairman' has been used merely for editorial ease.
