Tchad Western added, “On behalf of The Children’s Hospital Charity, I would like to thank Gems for all their hard work during 2011, we have many ongoing projects for which we are fundraising, on this occasion the money raised will be put towards specialist medical equipment for the Children’s Hospital.”
