Matt Forrest: I first met Andrew Reynolds back in 2005 when he approached Great Ormond Street Hospital to raise some money. When he first walked through the door and we had a chat, we really did not have any idea how much money Andrew was talking about. And it was only when he put forward his concept of holding an Entrepreneurs Bootcamp at Wembley Conference Centre and inviting 2,500 plus people and asking them all to make a donation to the hospital, that we really got a handle on how much money he was talking about.
Andrew Reynolds: Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve actually raised £325,000.
Matt Forrest: That event has gone towards funding an orthopaedics multi-bed treatment room which is an absolute phenomenal gift to the hospital. Andrew actually followed on from his 2005 event and held another Bootcamp for Great Ormond Street which we were unbelievably grateful for.
Andrew Reynolds: Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve actually raised £400,000.
Matt Forrest: That money, again, has gone towards the redevelopment of the hospital. This really will secure paediatric care for generations to come. It’s been an absolutely fantastic gift.
