Our Impact


Your support has an incredible impact on patient care in Nottingham’s hospitals.

Thanks to our fundraisers and donors, we raise around £4 million each year to transform services and facilities for patients at Nottingham’s hospitals – including City Hospital, Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham Children’s Hospital and Ropewalk House.

Many donors specifically request to support certain hospital areas or specialist services, so we have provided additional resources for children’s cancer wards, stroke patients, cardiac care and breast cancer care, to name but a few. None of this would be possible without people who choose to give their time and money to make that vital difference.
