Proceeds of the sales of a set of stylish bracelets designed by Princess Eugenie will go to Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) Charitys Redevelopment Appeal of which she is patron

A stylish bracelet - one of a series designed by Princess Eugenie - has been launched to raise funds for a Stanmore hospital's expansion.

The 24-year-old princess, who is the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, is the patron of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) Charity’s Redevelopment Appeal.

She princess underwent corrective surgery for curvature of the spine as a teenager at the hospital in Brockley Hill, Stanmore and has been a supporter ever since.

Eugenie showed off the jewellery she created at a gala fundraising dinner at The Savoy hotel in central London on Monday, and said: "I am living proof of the ways in which the RNOH can change people’s lives.

"This is why I am so enthusiastic about being patron of its Redevelopment Appeal and have given my name to its new state-of-the-art family accommodation unit, Princess Eugenie House. I am grateful to everyone for their generosity in supporting this wonderful cause.”

Her charity bracelets are available for a limited time and come in three styles - the silver plated version is £55 and the gold, and the rose gold varieties, are £70 each.

The proceeds of the accessories, which were designed in association with jewellers Daisy London, will go to the appeal.

Monday’s star-studded dinner and charity auction - entitled ‘The Hippest Joint in Town’ in reference to the hospital’s musculoskeletal specialism - saw lots such as a signed etching by artist Tracey Emin, a glamorous château holiday in the south of France and a VIP experience at a Kylie Minogue concert sold off.

Mike Thompson, chairman of the appeal, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who attended the gala dinner and to those who generously contributed towards the charity auction.

“It was a huge success and the money raised will fund vital facilities and equipment for the hospital which will help improve the lives of thousands of patients.”

 

The hospital has permission, and the NHS funding, for an almost complete rebuild but the appeal will provide a little extra by way of Princess Eugenie House, a new accommodation unit for the families of children being treated at the hospital; a new Spinal Cord Injury Centre; a new imaging centre with high spec X-ray and scanning machines; a Children and Young People’s Centre, and more homely furniture and furnishings.
