The Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe (2019/20), Councillor Michael Brown, has chosen to support the Nottingham Hospitals Charity, with all proceeds raised going to the Nottingham City Hospital Trent Cardiac Unit during this civic year. We hope everyone will join him in raising funds for this important charity through a series of fundraising events.
Nottingham City Hospital - The Trent Cardiac Unit
Nottingham Hospitals Charity enhances patient care at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust's Queen's Medical Centre, City Hospital and Ropewalk. they provided added extra such as improved facilities, equipment, and services that directly enhance patient experiences - such as request gardens, music therapy sessions, and massage therapy for palliative care patients. They also fund vital local research and exceptional staff development programmes over and above national provision.
The Trent Cardiac Centre is the epicentre for the East Midlands heart attack centre, which carries out both interventional and surgical procedures, treating breath of cardiac conditions. As a specialist centre they receive referrals for patients requiring cardiac treatments from not only the East Midlands but sometimes further afield too.
Registered charity number (1165397)
Each year the Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe organises a number of events to help raise money for their chosen charity. Details of charity events to follow soon.
Support the Mayor's charity
As well as attending the charity events listed above, you can also show your support to the Mayor's charities by organising your own event and getting your friends and colleagues to sponsor you.
Make a donation
If you are unable to attend one of the Mayor's charity events, you can still make a donation the chosen charities by making your cheque payable to 'Broxtowe Borough Council - Mayor's charities' and returning it to the Civic Office, Broxtowe Borough Council, Foster Avenue, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 1AB.
Supporting other charities
The Council realises you may choose to support different charities, which is fantastic. The Council get lots of requests to promote these individual efforts but it is difficult to promote them all.
In order to be fair to the widest range of charities, the Mayor each year chooses different charities to support and in that year of office these are the charities the council will adopt and promote.
This enables the Council to support a diverse range of charities and give us all the opportunity to maximise on the fundraising.
