December 21, 2017
For the 11th year running, Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust welcomed staff and stakeholders to their renowned annual NUHonours awards ceremony, which was supported by Nottingham Hospitals Charity.
And J Tomlinson was very pleased to be a part of the evening.
The event – which was established to recognise and celebrate the outstanding work of employees from Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC), Nottingham City Hospital and Ropewalk House – took place on Friday 24th November at East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.
From doctors and nurses to volunteers and behind-the-scenes staff, over 1,000 finalists spanning 15 categories, including Team of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award, were acknowledged, and the most remarkable candidates were announced as award winners.
J Tomlinson sponsored the Community Champion Award – a title that recognises exceptional fundraising initiatives undertaken on behalf of the hospital by an individual or community group.
The Harley Jae Trust – a charity dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting and life-changing conditions – was judged to be the winner by a panel that included patients, NUH Charity, and a Clinical representative.
As the charity at the heart of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, NUH Charity works with local people, volunteers, patients, businesses and staff to ensure additional support in the form of new facilities, specialist equipment and critical research.
Mark Davis, CEO of J Tomlinson, commented: “We were very pleased to be able to sponsor and attend this year’s NUHonours event, and to see the outstanding work delivered by so many individuals, teams and groups. The event was both humbling and truly inspirational.”
“Special congratulations to the Harley Jae Trust on their win.”
Nick Lawford, Fundraising Manager at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, commented: “We are so grateful to J Tomlinson for extending their already fantastic support for Nottingham Hospitals Charity to sponsor the NUHonours Community Champion award this year. The Community Champion award is given to an individual or group from the local community who have supported and fundraised for Nottingham’s hospitals, benefitting patients and staff.
“We had many brilliant and inspiring nominations, and the award was won by the Harley Jae Trust who have raised over £43,000 for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at Nottingham Children’s Hospital.”
