About the OSCAR Campaign. The OSCAR (Ocean and Shipping Community Advancing Children's Health and Research) campaign is an innovative fundraising partnership uniting the International Shipping Community under a philanthropic banner to raise significant funds towards areas of urgent need at Great Ormond Street Hospital and its research partner, the UCL Institute of Child Health.
The campaign is the inspiration of Phil Parry, Chairman of Spinnaker Consulting Ltd, whose son Oscar received lifesaving care at the Great Ormond Street Hospital. The campaign represents a unique opportunity to bring together companies and individuals from across the shipping community to create a shared legacy, delivering tangible support to help advance pioneering medicine for children around the world.
