Desira Group Fundraising in the Community

At Desira group, we are proud to support local charities and staff fundraising events.

Norfolk & Norwich Hospital Charity

We are supporting the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital charity which aims to improve patient, visitor and staff welfare at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Cromer and District Hospital.

While the NHS provides the necessities, the charity supports projects that make the hospital experience a better one for patients, visitors and staff. Your donations are used in many ways, from funding toys on our children’s wards to lifesaving equipment for various departments or wards.

Boudicca Breast Cancer Appeal

The NNUH breast unit handles breast cancer referrals from GPs across the region.
The number of patients it sees each month has almost doubled in the last five years, and a new dedicated breast unit is urgently needed.
The Boudicca Appeal will help fund this unit, and will mean:

  • Faster diagnosis and treatment
  • State-of-the-art equipment and same-day diagnostic tests so that patients only need attend the clinic once
  • An enhanced environment
  • Purpose-built and spacious waiting, consultation, counselling and treatment spaces dedicated to breast cancer patients
  • A better experience for patients
  • Less stress and anxiety for patients and their families whilst waiting for results, and fewer return visits

Norfolk Superhero 2022 - Holt Youth Project

Perry Payne, our Service Manager at Vulcan Road Norwich has signed up for the Norfolk Superhero 2022. This is a crazy quadrathlon consisting of a 1-mile sea swim, a 4-mile kayak, and a 45-mile cycle followed by an 8 mile run through the marshes at Burnham Overy Staithe. This is a completely unique and exciting event, that is raising money for the Holt Youth Project.

The Holt Youth Project is an amazing local charity that provides a safe environment for young people to socialise and learn new skills. They support young individuals with mental health & learning disabilities. If you can spare a small donation to support Perry and this amazing local charity it would mean a lot to him. Over the years the organisers & participants have raised huge sums of money for lots of brilliant local causes. With your help, they hope to do the same again this year!

Everyone at Desira wishes Perry luck in his mammoth quadrathlon and if you would like to donate please follow the link below.
