Two teams from NNUH are undertaking different challenges to raise money for the N&N Hospitals Charity.
Staff from Gateley Ward are going to be putting on their wellies and hiking boots and each walking 73km during September to raise money to purchase an additional ECG machine for their ward to benefit patients. The 73km represents 73 years of the NHS.
Natasha Adams, Deputy Ward sister, said: “We walk many steps in a shift when we are at work but we wanted to set this challenge to get outside and enjoy the Norfolk countryside and raise the money to provide this extra piece of equipment for our ward to benefit our patients.”
Two Gynaecology Oncology Specialist Nurses Paula Canwell and Nikki Hunter took part in a charity skydive on 27 August to raise money for the VOiCE campaign, part of the N&N Hospitals Charity, which supports the treatment and care of gynaecological patients in their department.
Louise Cook, NNUH Head of Fundraising, added: “After everything that my colleagues have experienced with the pandemic it is incredible to have their support in fundraising. It is so lovely to have two teams at the hospital raising money to help improve and enhance the care for their patients. Please do support the two challenges in any way you can by sending messages of support or donations.”
