N&N Hospitals Charity abseil returns with a double dare

The N&N Hospitals Charity Abseil is returning in what is fast becoming an annual tradition for thrill-seekers and daredevils, raising vital funds to support patients and staff at our hospital Trust.

And for 2023, there’s double dare – take on the iconic 42-foot Forum building in Norwich as well as an abseil down NNUH.

The first opportunity to test your courage takes place on Sunday 17 September at The Forum when qualified events team leader Dave Talbot, from Adventure Events, will provide full training and support on the day.

You’ll experience fabulous views of the city while supporting the charity which raises millions of pounds each year to support the work of our hospital Trust to benefit patients and staff.

The abseil moves to NNUH on Sunday 10 December when you have the chance to have some festive fun. Why not dress up in a Santa suit, pin on some angel wings or pull on a Christmas jumper to descend the 40ft from the fourth floor of the East Atrium.

Our 2022 charity abseil sold out within weeks so please sign up as soon as possible to guarantee your place on the wall.

In both events, you can take part as a team or as an individual in support of our hospitals during this special year as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the NHS, with a discount for those who sign up for both abseils.

Last year’s event saw Chief Nurse Nancy Fontaine, Chairman Tom Spink and Head of Chaplaincy Adrian Woodbridge take part, along with teams from infection control, switchboard and members of the public.

No experience is necessary, and registration is £25 (NNUH staff will receive a £10 discount, please contact the charity team for code).

Each participant is asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £50 for the N&N Hospitals Charity – you can raise money for any one of our main appeals, a department of your choice, or for our General Fund which supports projects across the Trust.

Participants of 15 years and over can take part, but if you are under 18, full parent consent will be required.

To sign up, Forum Abseil September 2023 | Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals Charity (enthuse.com)

Registration for the Christmas abseil will open later in the summer when those taking part in both events will receive a £5 discount. For more information, contact fundraising@nnuh.nhs.uk
