We have come together with Nottingham Hospitals Charity to support our city’s mental health for the very first time.
Bringing the football community and the city’s NHS hospitals together, our new pairing will work together to raise money for healthcare initiatives across the city. This will include funding for mental health support for young people through the Youth Service within Nottingham’s hospitals.
As the lead charity for Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, Nottingham Hospitals Charity works tirelessly to fund improvements to patient care in Queen’s Medical Centre, City Hospital, Ropewalk House and Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
Most recently, the Charity has committed to funding 83 staff wellbeing areas across the hospitals, for nurses, doctors, porters and other staff who have been working tirelessly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
By working in partnership for an initial 12 month period, the first fundraising campaign will launch at the start of the next season, with more details as to how you can get involved to be announced in the near future.
Barbara Cathcart, Chief Executive of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, agreed the two charities will be a great team.
“Nottingham is home to both sporting excellence and a magnificent NHS, so it is fitting that the two have come together to support our local community. I am really looking forward to launching our first fundraising campaign together and getting the whole of Nottingham on our side to help fund crucial health projects.”
Graham Moran Chief Executive of Nottingham Forest Community Trust, said:
“Nottingham Forest are delighted to join forces with our local NHS. We are determined to support the improved physical and mental wellbeing of local people and this collaboration will hopefully deliver the positive results we are aiming for. We hope Forest fans will get behind this campaign and play their role in making the campaign a great success.”
