Donate today to support your local Nottingham hospitals

We are here to support your hospitals

We are your dedicated Nottingham Hospitals Charity team, working hard to make sure the money you donate gets right to the heart of your local hospitals.

Our team is here to support you with your fundraising, plus we organise appeals, campaigns and events which help to support what the hospitals need each year. We also work really closely with our colleagues within the hospitals themselves, to meet the staff, teams and departments where your money is being put to use. We’re on hand if you need any advice on making a donation, leaving a legacy or holding your own fundraising event. So please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Visit us at our Nottingham City Hospital office at 2 Embley Road, which is off North Road, Nottingham, NG5 1RE. Alternatively, you can reach us by email, phone or on social media.
