Where your money goes

Welcome to your local charity at the heart of Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, supporting the best health care for all our patients.

We are dedicated to using your donations and your support to make a difference to patients, visitors and staff at our hospitals. This can be by providing

Life-saving equipment and new technology

Investing in our staff

Research

Patients and their families

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.

 

Charity Grants

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.

Legacies

We are always incredibly grateful when people remember us in their Will and we work very hard to ensure that funds left to us through a legacy are used to make a real difference to patient care. Here are some of the ways legacies have been used:

£571,000 from Marjorie Lockett’s legacy will be used to fund the running costs of a mobile cancer unit for three years, to get the service up and running;

£359,000 from a legacy left to us by Sidney Grout was part of our £1m contribution towards the purchase of a second surgical robot;

£180,000 from the legacy of Dorothy Sellick enabled the purchase of two new Echocardiography machines;

£600,000 from Andrew Kemp’s legacy will be used to create additional facilities for renal patients in the Jack Pryor Unit;

Much of the £1.8m grant for development of the Davison Unit at Cromer Hospital came from various legacies, including £400,000 from the £1m legacy from Douglas de Bootman.
