All of the money we raise through donations and fundraising is invested in our NHS Trust. The Trust is made up of your local hospitals – N&N Hospital, the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital and Cromer Hospital.
As a Charity, we aim to maximise the amount available for us to spend on our charitable activities. In 2019-20, 97p from every £1 was spent on lifesaving equipment and new technology, enhancing the patient environment, supporting staff and funding research. Just 3p from every £1 was spent on raising funds.
In the coming year, we plan to spend £4.1m to support projects in the Trust. Thanks to donations we receive, we are able to support a huge variety of projects across the Trust. Some of the projects are in excess of £1m whereas others are much more modest but still have a huge impact.
Some of the grants we have awarded in recent months include:
£1,700 to purchase new furniture for the Breast Imaging counselling room;
£518 for an iPad to be used by patients in Critical Care;
£2,520 for Big C to run an exercise programme for cancer patients;
£3,840 to fund seven paediatric training courses;
£9,550 for an additional ultrasound scanner for Cromer Hospital;
£385 to purchase 100 digital thermometers for Cystic Fibrosis patient home monitoring.
