Work for Good is the brainchild of Rupert Pick, who was inspired to give back to the amazing hospital staff who care for his daughter Ottie.
Ottie was born 10 weeks premature, weighing less than 3lbs and with two rare genetic conditions that affect both her bones and her heart.
When Rupert decided to donate the fees from his next workshop to the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, it made him wonder about all the wonderful things that could happen if only more businesses chose to give through their work.
