  1. Can I place an order from outside the UK?

Unfortunately, due to the impact of Brexit on postage and delivery we are unable to deliver GOSH Shop orders outside of the UK for the remainder of the year.

We only recently re-launched the shop after a challenging year which included an 8 month closure and other difficulties resulting from the covid-19 crisis. We do hope to reinstate international delivery as soon possible, but for now we’re focusing on delivering our service to the UK so that we can continue to support Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) as they deliver life-changing care for seriously ill children.

If you’re living outside of the UK, you can still support Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity and the GOSH Shop by leaving a donation.

Thank you for understanding. 

  1. I've purchased something online, and want to provide feedback, how do I do this?

Unfortunately, we don’t yet accept reviews (although it’s something we’re working on!) For now, you can leave us your feedback by emailing 

  1. Can I exchange or request a refund?

No problem! If you change your mind or find the product isn’t for you, you can contact us within 14 days of receipt, and we will offer a replacement or refund. This does not affect your statutory rights. 

Unfortunately, cheque refunds take longer to process, normally you should expect your cheque refund within 28 days.

If you’ve registered an account, you’ll also be able to see any past or existing orders under ‘my orders’ by logging in and clicking my account at the top of the page.

  1. What’s a ‘GOSH Alternative Gift’ and how does it work?

When you buy a GOSH Alternative Gift you are making a direct donation to the charity, usually on behalf of a friend, family, colleague or teacher.

Once you’ve chosen the gift, we’ll send a lovely gift card with details about your donation and how it supports the work of this extraordinary hospital. 

Your donation will be used wherever the hospital needs it most, so whether you’ve picked Bear Ward (which looks after children with heart conditions) or Leopard Ward (which looks after children with respiratory conditions), you’re helping to give a seriously ill child the chance of a better future.

  1. How can I donate?

You can donate at the check-out or by clicking the blue button at the top of the page, your donation will be added straight to your shopping basket. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to leave a regular monthly gift, visit

Unfortunately, we don’t currently have this option available, but we’re working on launching this option as soon as we can.
