Making a difference

The generous support of local people through fund raising events and individual donations meant that £251,000 was donated to the Charitable Funds Scheme last year, which helped to enhance patient care and provide patient amenities. 

You can specify a particular ward, service or hospital or donate to our general fund. There are a variety of ways to donate, which can be found on the Ways to donate page.

There are many ways in which Charitable Funds has supported the work of Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust and can make a real difference to our patients. Read about some of them here.

The 'New Mums Withput Mums' group was set up by Louise Mundford, who lost her 64-year-old mum Lynn to cancer, just four days after having her 12-week scan while pregnant with her first child Lydia.

Designed to provide support and friendship to other mums who have lost their mothers, the group also regularly raises funds for charities chosen by its members.

The Priscilla Bacon Centre, which is part of Colman Hospital and provides specialist end-of-life services, is the latest to benefit, and will receive all the proceeds from the calendar.

Jayne and Robin Pooley with Claire Martin

Jayne's marathon effort to say thanks for her dad's care

Jayne Pooley ran the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in London to raise money for Caroline House, our inpatient unit for people with complex neurological conditions, based at the Colman Centre for Specialist Rehabilitation Services.

She chose to raise money for the unit after her father Robin spent five weeks receiving intensive rehabilitation at the centre after suffering a series of brain haemorrhages and developing water on the brain.

"We'd heard great things about Caroline House and they far exceeded all our expectations. We started to notice improvements straight away - a plan was put in place for his care which set him objectives, and everyone at the unit worked hard to help him achieve those goals", said Jayne.
