To celebrate our 250th anniversary, we will be holding special events throughout the year to recognise the hospital’s quarter of a century history. Here are some of the events we will be holding during:

Norfolk Cycle Challenge

Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced cyclist, we would like you to get on your bike to fundraise and/or donate in multiples of £25 to represent the 250 years of charitable donations that has benefited our NHS hospital.

Among the challenges are to cycle to and around as many of Norfolk’s villages and towns, cycle 2.5, 25 or 250 miles for 250 years and many more options tailored to your own specific requirements and timelines.

The aim is to have fun fundraising and to go out and visit the amazing landmarks around our beautiful county. To find out more and download your pack: or
