This year is an historic year as Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, celebrates 70 years on the throne.
We will be celebrating the Platinum Jubilee along with our colleagues across Nottingham Hospitals, which has a special connection with Her Majesty. Did you know that in 1977 Her Majesty officially open the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, making it the UK’s largest hospital at the time?
Since our beginning over 15 years ago we’ve been proud to support patients and staff at Queen’s Medical Centre, as well as the City Hospital, by funding important projects and specialist equipment.
Why not celebrate the Platinum Jubilee by raising money for Nottingham Hospitals, to mark this special occasion?
Here are some special Platinum Jubilee fundraising ideas:
Walk 70 miles
Pull on your walking shoes and walk 70 miles over June to celebrate The Queen’s 70 years on the throne. It’s easy to do, simply sign up to our Hike for your Hospitals event and choose where and when you walk. If 70 miles is out of your reach, how about aiming for seven miles, or raise £70 instead?
Hold a street party
The UK will be lining the streets from June 2nd
until June 5th as thousands of street parties have been planned and will bring neighbours, families and complete strangers together to celebrate. You could hold a cake sale or bake-off style competition and raise money for your local NHS hospitals at the same time.
If your street is not holding a street party, there are still ways to bring your neighbours and loved ones together. Pop the kettle on and organise a coffee morning to raise a mug of tea in honour of Her Majesty.
Do your own thing
If none of these catch your eye, then find out how you can do your own thing and still raise money for Nottingham Hospitals. Whether that is doing 70 hula hoops, baking 70 Jubilee themed cupcakes, or even walking 70 corgis – no matter how you raise money for Nottingham Hospitals, it really does make a difference to patients and NHS staff here in Nottingham.
