Norfolks leading hospital invites public to see its facilities at fete and open day
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital will be opening its doors to the public from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 20th June 2015 for its open day and fete.
Visitors will be able to see what goes on behind the scenes at the hospital, browse the fete stalls for cakes and crafts, enjoy the live music, or look around the careers fair. There will be free entry and free car parking on the day with any funds raised from the event going to the hospitals charity
John Fry, NNUH Chairman said: “We would like to showcase some of the excellent work that goes on within the hospital and give the public a chance to see areas that would not usually be open to them. We will also be running a hospital fete alongside the open day in aid of our Hospital Charity.”
Key attractions at the open day include finding out what goes on in an operating theatre, visiting the labs, making a plaster mould of your hand, meeting Fred the Pharmacy robot, taking part in traditional fete games or taking your teddy for an X-ray before joining Big Cs teddy bears picnic.
Louise Cook, NNUH Fundraising Manager said; We love opening our doors to the public so people can see what good work goes on at the hospital. There will be something for every family member from activities for the children to enjoy or information for those looking to begin a career in healthcare.
