Upcoming events

We have many events taking place throughout the year, organised both by the charity and by members of staff, patients and other groups and individuals. As a result of Covid-19, many of our events are being held “virtually”.

Charity Champions 2021

The N&N Hospitals Charity is delighted to announced the winners of the 2021 Charity Champion Awards.

Our annual award programme seeks to thank members of our community, including schools, young people, businesses and members of staff for going over and above in support of our hospitals in their own unique way.

Once again, choosing the winners was a difficult task and we would choose every one of our supporters if we could, but we are delighted to reveal our 2021 winners:

Charity Champion Inspiration Award

James Barham raised almost £30,000 for Mulbarton Ward James Barham in the months that followed his diagnosis for acute myeloid leukaemia just weeks after his first child Charlie was born.

Despite the gruelling treatment, James inspired 1,000 people across the world to made a donation, raising almost £30,000 for our cancer teams

Charity Champion Community Award

Young Person’s Charity Champion Award

Paige Buckingham has raised more than £1,000 for the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital where she has been treated for the past two years for Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis condition.

Eight-year-old Paige is a baker in the making and has raised money selling her cakes and we hope to see her one day on the Great British Bake Off .

Gabriella Catlin raised £600 for the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital where she was treated as a youngster. Eight-year-old Gabriella made wonderful tie-dye t-shirts which she sold during lockdown 2020.

Tallulah Pettit, 12, raised £400 in appreciation of the care and support that NICU provided. Tallulah’s unborn sister was diagnosed with a rare condition that meant she needed extensive treatment and care after her birth

Xavier Oates raised more than £1,000 walking 10 kilometres – the distance from his home in Taverham to his Nanny’s house in Hellesdon and back. Nine-year-old Xavier wanted to support our Covid 19 appeal and in doing so, bagged himself a coveted Blue Peter badge and letter from the Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk.

Senior Operating Department Practitioner Kate Didwell and Operating Department Practitioner Hannah Hembry-Pearson raised £3,430 for the Boudicca Breast Cancer Appeal by shaving their heads.

Kate and Hannah work in the plastic reconstructive theatres where their work supports reconstructive procedures for patients following breast cancer.

Charity Champion Director’s Award

The late Brian Garrad raised almost £4,000 during the first national lockdown in May 2020 after plans to take part in VE Day celebrations at Buckingham Palace were cancelled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mr Garrad, who served with the 120th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment during the WWII, walked 70 laps of his garden, despite having COPD.

We were saddened to hear that Mr Garrad passed away earlier this year but we were delighted that his daughter, Ruth Dockerty, accepted his award.

We are delighted to have a team of runners taking part in next year’s London Landmarks Half Marathon. Watch this space to find out how you can get involved.

Summer 2022

RunNorwich 2022

Last year, the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation took the difficult decision to cancel Run Norwich because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know many of our supporters were looking forward to taking part in the race while raising money for the hospital, and the hospital itself had a team of runners who were raising money for the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital.

We are looking forward to coming together next year for this fantastic event and anyone who gets their own place when they are released and would like to support us, we would be delighted to hear from you.
