  • Thanks to very kind donations from families in our village we have just delivered a large box of toys, books and DVD's to the John Radcliffe Hospital Children's Hospital.  They were very grateful and asked us to wish everyone who donated throughout the year a very Merry Christmas. X

  • The Thinking of Oscar Cookbook, Made with Love, was originally intended to be a collection of recipes inspired by friends of Oscar’s family who, in the weeks and months after Oscar died, generously delivered home cooked meals to the family’s doorstep. Day after day, as word of the project spread some celebrity chefs became involved in the campaign. The resulting book is a collection of tried and tested recipes, family favourites handed down through generations, meals that are quick to prepare and great to share. Together we created a cookbook that is unique and eclectic, but most of all fun. The first print run sold out in months, because many people came back having supported the charity with their first purchase, and bought the book for friends and family as gifts.

We hope that following #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday #GivingTuesdaywill inspire you to donate just £12.50 to share a copy of the Thinking of Oscar Cookbook with someone that you know just to tell them that you are thinking of them, in the same way our village told us they were thinking of us by sharing food with us. Why not share a copy with an old school friend or colleague? Someone you would like to thank? A neighbour who could do with a boost? Someone who you’ve not spoken to for too long and you just want them to know that you are thinking of them? 
When you place your order send us a message and we will add a handwritten note to your book on your behalf. Each book costs £10.00 plus £2.50 postage and packing and all profits from the cookbook will continue to help Thinking of Oscar to support children and their families whilst in hospital care. Check out our campaigns page to see the difference that Thinking of Oscar is working hard to make to hundreds and hundreds of children.

Every order received before Sunday 11th December will be entered into a prize draw to receive an iPad mini.

  • Today Hannah and David Cole visited @greatormondstreethospital to formally donate an @accuvein vein finding device. Thanks to the amazing support of the Thinking of Oscar supporters who have made this possible. 
There are literally hundreds and hundreds of blood tests and cannulations that are performed on a daily basis throughout children's hospitals and this innovative solution allows doctors and nurses to perform these procedures with much more speed, accuracy and less distress to children, their parents and also the medical team.
