We are very proud that our giant illuminated rainbow on Chantry Square will help raise awareness and funds for The Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital, part of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) NHS Foundation Trust.

We caught up with Paul McCarthy, our General Manager, who said: “We all celebrate and are in awe of our NHS heroes and the rainbow has served as a beacon of hope over the last year. So we wanted to tie its arrival into a fundraising initiative to support the incredible work of the NNUH, as well as celebrate key workers and pay tribute to those who have lost a loved one to Covid. We are also continuing to offer free parking to NHS workers to thank them for everything they are doing.”

The Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital is a major centre for specialist paediatric services in the East of England, providing acute specialist care and supporting babies, children and young people and their families.

We spoke to Head of Fundraising at NNUH, Louise Cook, who said: “We are delighted that Chantry Place has chosen to support the N&N Hospitals Charity and the money raised will go towards our marvellous Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital, which helps so many babies, children, young people and their families across Norfolk.”
