Reuben Brothers Donate
Great Ormond Street hospital, in central London, has announced a multi-million pound contribution from brothers David and Simon Reuben towards the construction of a new children’s cancer centre at the hospital. The centre will enable Great Ormond Street to become the largest centre for paediatric haematology oncology treatment in Europe and one of the top three largest centres in the world. The donation follows a recent visit to the hospital by the Reuben brothers who are giving the money through their philanthropic foundation, established in 2002. The Reuben Foundation gives grants in the areas of healthcare and education in the UK. The money went to the hospital because the brothers recognise the urgent need to treat more children suffering with cancer in modern state-of-the-art facilities.
