Get involved… as a fundraiser

There are many ways to get involved in fundraising for our hospital charity either individually, with friends or colleagues or as a larger group. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Take part in an organised sponsored event

Register for one of the many sporting events such as the Bupa10km, Local Triathlons, London Marathon, Great East Swim or Great North Run and nominate NNUH charity as your chosen charity.

Plan your own sponsored event

Anything can be done from a head shave to a walk to a silence to a sit down; if you can think of it, you can do it!

Involve your colleagues

Have a dress down or even a themed dress day, clean up office language with a swear box, or even better challenge your boss to something outrageous!

Organise your own event

Get some friends together and organise a charity ball or auction or a quiz night in your local pub.

We have several ‘How To..’ fundraising guides to get you started – just contact us for help.

Top tip!

Setting up your own online fundraising page with JustGiving makes it easier for friends, family members and colleagues to make a donation. If you wish to fundraise for a particular area of the hospital, please remember to specify on your fundraising page, so that we can ensure that all money raised goes to the correct area.

Get involved…as a volunteer

If you are looking for the opportunity to make a real difference to your local hospital, why not volunteer for us?  We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers with a wide range of skills and experience, to help with administrative tasks, at fundraising events, form small local fundraising groups and to help promote the charity.

Become a fundraising group

If you enjoy organising events on a regular basis, why not join up with a group of friends and form a volunteer fundraising group? We can provide practical help and support and are looking to set up small groups all over Norfolk. Help us to raise vital funds and awareness, so whilst the NHS provides the necessities, the hospital charity funds projects that make the hospital experience a better one for our patients, visitors and staff.

Call 01603 287107 or email  for more information.

Get involved…as a company

At the hospital we aim to recognise the support of local companies that help us to continue to improve patient, visitor and staff welfare across our hospitals. By choosing to partner with such a local charity, your company can make a difference where it matters the most.

Every single one of your customers, clients, employees or stakeholders is highly likely to have used the services of our hospitals at some points, either for themselves or their loved ones. If they have not yet experienced some form of care, they probably will do in the future.

There are many ways to get involved so please contact the fundraising team for more information on 01603 287107 or email

Get involved…as a school

We are keen to work in partnership with schools, colleges and education groups. There are many ways for schools to get involved, whether it is a sponsored event or a non-school uniform day. Supporting the hospital is a great way to focus the fundraising efforts of your school, and fundraising activities could be concentrated in a ‘Charity Week’ or spread out across various events throughout the year.

Learning about the charity

We are happy to come along to your school or college and conduct assemblies or class talks for any age group about the work of the hospital charity. We can make these assemblies both educational and fun.  We like to publicise and acknowledge events that our supporters organise – the more imaginative the better! This in turn is great PR for your school within the community.


There are lots of ways to raise money and we are more than happy to provide you with advice about organising an event. Have a look at the list above to get some ideas!

Get involved… by taking on a challenge

Fancy doing something different? Want to take on a personal challenge and raise money for charity? Then why not take part in a challenge like skydiving, triathlon or marathon running.

Each challenge has a minimum sponsorship level (which not only raises money for the charity but also covers the cost of you going on the trip) or a minimum cost you must pay (then you raise as much sponsorship you can).

We work with several companies who specialise in giving you an experience of a lifetime while supporting your local hospital,  all you need to do is choose your challenge, choose us as your charity and start fundraising.
