We are pleased to announce that three new Trustees have recently joined the Board at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, bringing a range of experience and expertise with them.

Sanjeev Sharma joined our Board of Trustees earlier this year after previously supporting the Charity and raising more than £42,000 through a Mount Snowdon trek, to thank hospital staff for saving his life after he was seriously ill with Covid-19.

He is a successful and well-respected barrister, based in Nottingham but practising across the country.

More recently, Ilana Freestone and Victoria Norrish have joined Sanjeev and our seven other Trustees.

Ilana Freestone is the CEO of local charitable trust Active Partners Trust, which aims to empower everyone in the community to be active.

Victoria Norrish is the Chief Financial Officer at Blue Light Card, which offers retail discounts at a range of companies for those working in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector and armed forces.

We would like to take this opportunity to offer a warm welcome to our three new Trustees – we are delighted to have you on board.

Sanjeev said: “I am delighted to take on the role of Trustee at Nottingham Hospitals Charity – it is a cause which is extremely close to my heart after the life-saving treatment I received at the City Hospital and QMC back in 2020. I’m pleased to be able to give something back to the hospital staff who cared for me so well.”

Ilana said: “Having helped to establish the Active Partners Trust in 2017, setting up all aspects of governance and recruiting a new Board and team, I wanted to use the skills I’ve developed to help another local charity too. I am really pleased to be joining the Board of Trustees at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, and sharing my expertise here.”

Victoria said: “Blue Light Card is an organisation whose ethics and values are all about putting their members first, including those working in the NHS. This ethos is what drew me both to my role there, and to the role of Trustee at Nottingham Hospitals Charity. I feel there is a huge affinity between these two roles, and look forward to bringing my skills and experience to the Charity.”
