During 2018, we have been pleased to part sponsor the NUH Volunteer Long Service Awards held on 6th June at the Crowne Plaza hotel. Previously we have also part sponsored NUH Staff Long Service Awards, and the Nurse and Midwife of the Year Awards. All of these events are a wonderful celebration of the work of the exceptionally committed and skilled staff working across the NUH.

COMMITTEE MEETINGS are held once per month on Tuesday evenings, when donations received and requests made for support are discussed, as well as fund-raising and other activity.

As a new fundraising activity we ran a QUIZ on 30th April at the Salvation Army Hall in Arnold. This was an extremely successful event. Funds raised were used to support items requested by the City Hospital Stroke Unit.

The annual LACE MARKET THEATRE event will be held on Tuesday 26th June 2018 at 7.30 pm. The performance is Rough Crossing by Tom Stoppard, described as a hilarious play matching screwball comedy with Tom Stoppard’s typical sophisticated wit. Tickets are now sold out.

Another new fundraising event will be a SUMMER LUNCH WITH SPEAKER on 7th August 2018, starting at 11.30 am followed by lunch at 1 pm, at Welbeck Hall, West Bridgford. The speaker is Paul Newham “The Streets of London”. Tickets cost £21.50 including a prize draw and are available from Lorraine Robinson-Unwin email: lor.robinson21@yahoo.co.uk or Barbara McDonald email: bmcdonald351@btinternet.com.

The ANNUAL CONCERT will be held on Saturday 10th November 2018 and we look forward to another varied performance of music and prose from the BLUECOAT CHOIR. More information regarding the programme and ticket availability will be published soon.

Our 2018 AGM will be held on 9th October – details of speakers etc to follow.
