The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (GOCC, Polish Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy, WOŚP) is the biggest, non-governmental, non-profit, charity organization in Poland raising money for pediatric and elderly care. The GOCC aims to support health care in Poland by purchase of state of the art medical equipment for Polish hospitals and clinics and by establishing and running six medical programmes and one educational programme. The foundation supports pediatric and geriatric wards, furnishing them in both complex medical devices such as MRI scanners, and providing long-term care units with anti-bedsore mattresses and beds.
The Grand Finale of the Orchestra is great fun throughout Poland and even abroad – wherever the orchestra’s staff has registered – combined with an auction of interesting items and services.
The main objective of the upcoming 31st Grand Finale is purchasing of the medical equipment for early diagnosis of the bacterial infection that causes sepsis.
In our Lubomierz, people also had fun with music, money was raised and collected. One of the auction items was the weekend at “House on the Fringe” (“Dom na Skraju”) on April 14-16, 2023, and the auctioned funds have already contributed to the Orchestra’s fund.
“House on the Fringe” expects nice guests: parents with two kids, a seven-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl.
We will try to make your stay with us a wonderful rest for them.
