Designer stroller brand iCandy has designed a pushchair protoype for cardiac patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital, the company’s official charity partner.
Joint CEOs Bradley and Warren Appel have paid a visit to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), to see for themselves the state-of-the-art modified pushchairs iCandy has generously designed for seriously ill children with cardiac conditions.
The bespoke version of the luxury iCandy Strawberry pushchair will be functional while providing a safe and comfortable environment for children and will be able to accommodate each patient’s complex medical equipment.
Modifications include an oxygen tank basket, additional space and an adapted harness, both of which have been designed to take medical equipment into account.
During the visit, iCandy also announced it has raised £100,000 for the charity, which will go towards an enclosed isolation recovery bay in the hospital’s newest clinical building.
The long-term relationship with GOSH is a cause very close to the heart of the business and forms one of the key pillars of its day-to-day culture.
Commenting on the partnership, Bradley Appel said: “As both a family and a family business we are so happy to be working so closely with GOSH and GOSH Charity in order to raise vital funds and to promote awareness of the incredible work that is undertaken there.”
