NHS 75th Birthday fundraising ideas

Don’t fancy running or walking? We have a list of other fun activities you can get involved in to show your appreciation for the years of commitment and innovation our NHS has given us all in every aspect of life, from the moment we are born through to end-of-life care.

Raise money to help your local NHS charity improve and enhance healthcare for everyone in your community now and for another 75 years. Healthcare advancements help provide a better quality of life for patients and keep families together longer. It also supports enhanced wellbeing initiatives for staff, ensuring those who are caring for us and our loved ones are at their very best.
