Twice michelin starred chef Atul kochhar from London to undertake Antarctica expedition for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
On 27th December this winter, chef Atul Kochhar will be embarking on his second mission to Antarctica, to cook for a special group of guests, to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
Atul undertook the treacherous journey to Antarctica last year and on his return said; ‘never again’, however his quest and urge to support the hospital has given him the motivation to return with Q Experiences.
Atul has been a dedicated supporter of Great Ormond Street Hospital for over a decade and has seen first-hand the exceptional work they do.
In February 2004 his daughter was born but quickly became unwell and admitted to intensive care, due to Meconium on her lungs. After a harrowing number of days, she was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital to undergo a lifesaving operation. She proceeded to spend three months at the hospital, under the expert care of the exceptional team, before being allowed home to make a full recovery. Today she is a bright and confident teenager.
Kochhar said: “My daughter didn’t have the best start to life, but we were incredibly fortunate and grateful that Great Ormond Street Hospital were there for us. I want to do my bit to ensure Great Ormond Street Hospital is there for every child that needs its services. I’m excited and nervous about my second trip to Antarctica but I’m looking forward to cooking for a special group of people, in order to raise as much money as possible.”
Laura Savory, Head of Community Events at Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity said: “We’re so grateful to Atul Kochhar for his generosity and support. The money raised will help to make a difference to seriously ill children from across the UK.”
