Today (Wednesday 13th July 2022) we were honoured to help celebrate our NUH Charity Scholars completing their BSc degrees, which were funded by Nottingham Hospitals Charity.
Celebrating with their peers, mentors, Trustees and members of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, the scholars’ achievements were recognised at a special event at Nottingham City Hospital.
Speaking at the degree celebration event, Nottingham Hospitals Charity Trustee, Professor Harish Vyas, said: “The Charity takes nursing education very, very seriously.”
We are proud to have funded 26 university scholarships for nursing and midwifery staff, which has allowed them to develop their leadership and innovations skills through a BSc degree.
At today’s event, Helen Gunn, one of our Charity Scholars, said: “If it hadn’t been for the Charity, we wouldn’t have had this opportunity.”
Among these was Charity Scholar Louise Kirk, who raised £650 by taking on our Big QMC Abseil and encouraging her colleagues to take part in a Christmas ‘Elf Socks’ day. Also present were husband and wife duo Tom and Alison Large, who have both completed degrees at the same time. Tom is one of our Charity Scholars and has gone on to support the Charity by taking on the gruelling Tissington Trail Marathon last year.
We’re so proud of all of our Charity Scholars and look forward to seeing where their new degrees take them.
