Wrapping up 2022 at Nottingham Hospitals Charity

Posted on: 28 Dec 2022

As we reach the end of another year here at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, we wanted to look back at how amazing our 2022 has been.

We’ve been so lucky throughout the year to visit numerous projects that we have funded, including the award-nominated BAME Wig Project which provides wigs for cancer patients from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community.

We’ve also funded a special ultrasound machine, which allows for better diagnosis and treatment for patients across Nottingham who are experiencing a range of conditions. We also opened up the VRI Suite at Nottingham Children’s Hospital, for patients who have experienced sexual assault or abuse, to have a place where they can feel comfortable and safe when being interviewed by police.

After a two year break we saw the return of the popular Dragon Boat Race which saw staff from Nottingham hospitals as well as local businesses take to the water and compete to be the fastest rower on the day. Despite the immense heat, over 280 people took part and raised money for Nottingham hospitals. We were also lucky enough once again to be a Charity partner at the Robin Hood Half Marathon where runners took part in the Half Marathon and the Mini Marathon.

2022 also saw the launch of the Hayward House Appeal in which we aim to raise £1.5 million for the palliative care unit at Nottingham City Hospital. We also launched the Robin Centre Appeal, which allows us to provide a bereavement centre for parents and families across Nottingham.

Our Charity Hub at QMC has also recently reopened to visitors after a two year hiatus due to Covid restrictions.

We were delighted to welcome Our Dementia Choir and Vicky McClure to Nottingham Hospitals in May to celebrate and raise awareness during Dementia Action Week. We also welcomed Nottingham Forest Women’s Football player Naomi Powell to QMC as part of our October Step Challenge campaign.

The group from Our Dementia Choir are performing. There are five members sitting at the front and five members are standing at the back.

Most importantly, we have met so many members of Team NUH throughout the year. Whether it was visiting a funded project, meeting them at events or when we surprise them with a cool treat on the hottest day of the year, it’s always so important to us to say thank you for the hard work they do to look after patients throughout the year.

We can’t wait to see what 2023 has in store.
