On Wednesday 5th July 2023, our incredible NHS will mark its 75th birthday! Here at Nottingham Hospitals Charity we’ll be fundraising and celebrating to mark this special occasion.

If you’d like to get involved in the festivities, and raise money for Nottingham’s NHS hospitals in this special birthday year, here are a few ideas to get you started…

  • Take part in a sponsored walk – take part in Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s Hike for your Hospitals campaign, and get together with family, friends or colleagues to walk your chosen distance in aid of Nottingham’s hospitals. Why not walk 75 miles over the course of a month, to mark 75 years of the NHS?
  • Take on a challenge event – take on one of Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s exciting events, such as the Big QMC Abseil, Skydive or Dragon Boat Race – all great ways to get a team of friends, family members of colleagues together for a day of fun and excitement!
  • Hold a quiz – arrange an online or in-person quiz with Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s special quiz pack! It’s an easy and enjoyable way of getting together and raising money.
  • Do your own thing – many fundraisers choose to organise their own fundraising events, such as cake sales and balls, to raise money for their chosen area of Nottingham’s hospitals.
Alongside your fundraising, you can also leave a message of thanks to the staff at Nottingham’s NHS hospitals on our online dedication page.

Whatever you choose to do, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating our amazing NHS, and thanking all the hardworking staff at Nottingham’s hospitals for everything they do.

If you’d like to get in touch about your fundraising, email us at or call us on 0115 962 7905.
