Come and join us for the hospital open day and fete

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital will be holding an Open Day and Fete, from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 8 June 2019. Visitors will be able to take part in hands on activities, browse the fete stalls or look around the careers fair. There will be free entry and free car parking on the day.

Louise Cook, Head of Fundraising who is organising the event, said: “We want to showcase some of the excellent work that goes on within the hospital and provide families with a fun day out. All the proceeds will be going to the hospital charity which benefits local patients and helps us to enhance our facilities and provide those extra items of equipment.”

Visitors will be able to meet Fred the Pharmacy Robot, test their lung capacity and manual dexterity, try their hand at endoscopy on a model of the body and make a plaster mould of their hand at the Colney Centre. There will also be tours of the breast cancer unit to see how the hospital is improving services for patients through the Boudicca Breast Cancer Appeal.

At the fete, there will be lots of activities for children, including face painting and traditional fete games, with live music and dancing. Darth Vader will be making an appearance along with the Pets as Therapy dogs. Crafts and homemade cakes will be available for visitors to buy.
