Team NUH & Staff Grants

We have plenty of opportunities for members of Team NUH and their families to get involved with fundraising. On this page, you’ll also find information about applying for grants.

Challenge 1000

Challenge 1000 is our staff fundraising competition. We challenge all wards and teams to try and raise £1,000 each year. The money is then reinvested in their area of work. The top fundraising teams receive prizes at the end of the financial year (ending 31st March). Last year teams from across the hospitals collectively raised £122,000 through Challenge 1000!

For more information about taking part in Challenge 1000 please contact our Charity Fundraising team: charity@nuh.nhs.uk or via phone on 0115 962 7905

There are plenty of Charity events for you and your colleagues can get involved with. There’s something for everyone on our events page. If you’d like to receive our Challenge 1000 e-newsletter including information about events, staff fundraising, and exclusive offers for staff, please email our Charity Fundraising team: mailto:charity@nuh.nhs.uk

Applying for Funds

We work closely with Team NUH to identify the areas in greatest need of funding. If you identify a need in your department that you think will make a real difference to patients, you can apply for funding to meet that need, or you can fundraise towards it.  Find out more about our Charity Guidelines on NUH Intranet.

Thank you!

“These dialysis chairs, funded by Nottingham Hospitals Charity, make such a difference during my treatment. I am often in a chair for hours at a time, so having somewhere comfortable to sit – or lie back – makes a real difference.”
