Raise money for our charitable funds

We are always grateful to our supporters for fundraising, gifts and legacies.

Funds are separate from NHS income and make a difference to the people who use and work in our services.

We have a Just Giving page or donate now and you can also raise funds by shopping online through Easyfundraising. Sign up for free.

We use the money to support a wide range of activities and initiatives. Some people donate to a specific ward or team and others more generally to the fund. All types of donation are welcome.

The Charitable Funds Committee runs the accounts, overseen by fund holders.

The Trust's charitable fund is registered with the Charity Commission, charity number 1103563.

Marathon effort for NHS causes

Chris Johnson and child

Welder Chris Johnson braved a weekend of hot weather to run 100 miles in 24 hours for NHS charities.

The 35-year-old set himself a total of £250 but that soon climbed to more than £1,600 for various mental health and acute services in the NHS.

His run was part of a country-wide challenge by Centurion Running to raise money for good causes during lockdown, putting runners to the test at distances of 3 to 100 miles.

Chris took 23 hours 38 minutes to complete his run.

Proud wife Kay, who works for Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust, said: “He started it on Friday 29 May at 6.20am and finished at 6am on the Saturday. Nurses dropping their kids off at school saw him running at different stages and thanked him, then donated. People were spotting him all day at various points, it was lovely. The heat made it really hard for him but he kept going. Friends stopped by to bike and do a few laps with him. It was a really lovely team spirt kind of day.”

Chris caught the running bug after completing the London Marathon in 2009 and has since raised money for many charities, including taking part in the 24-hour challenge previously.

He also looks to running to help his own mental health. “It’s the chance to escape from busy day-to-day life,” he said. “With this whole situation and everything that’s going on, it just seemed appropriate to try and help.”

He added: “NHS staff and volunteers are doing amazing work right now in caring for COVID-19 patients. Together, let's show our respect and gratitude as they work tirelessly in the face of the virus.”
