Charity Champions celebrated as winners revealed

On Wednesday evening, the Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Charity held its fifth Charity Champion Awards.

Formerly the Fundraising Inspiration Awards, the event celebrated the amazing support of all the donors who have provided gifts, raised funds and given their time to our charity for the benefit of our amazing hospitals.

The awards had a different look this year due to the impact of Covid-19, and instead of taking place live at the N&N, winners received their awards at their place of business, home or school.

The N&N Hospitals Charity team said: “Every single person who donates and supports our charity makes such a huge difference to our patients and staff.

“Choosing winners is an impossible task as we are so grateful for every donation we receive – every one of our supporters means so much to us all here at the N&N.”
