Following news reports that a number of presents at Great Ormond Street Hospital have gone missing, we can confirm there has been a theft and are fully co-operating with the police.

We have been overwhelmed by generous offers from individuals and companies to replace the missing items.

These items have now been replaced by a long-term supporter.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted us for their concern and kindness.
