County Council past Chairman raises £6000 for Nottingham Children’s Hospital

Councillor Sue Saddington, past Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council, has presented a cheque for £6,000 to her chosen charity during her year in office, the Nottingham Children’s Hospital. Paediatric doctors and nurses at the hospital care for over 60,000 babies, children and young people from across the region.

Many people saw the tv series which showed the excellent work that takes place at the Queen’s Medical Centre, where the charity is based. Coun Saddington said that she is very fortunate to have a healthy grandson but is aware that some people are, sadly, not so fortunate.

Coun Saddington says: “One cannot help but be touched by the devoted work of the hospital staff and the worry and anguish of parents sitting beside their sick children. It can be such an awful time for families. I wanted to support the Children’s Hospital and support the truly wonderful work that takes place there.”

Louise Knight, Fundraising Manager at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, which runs the Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital, says: “We are extremely grateful to Councillor Saddington for her support over the past year. She has done a tremendous job of bringing together a whole host of people and events to raise money. The money raised will make a huge difference to young patients being treated at Nottingham Children’s Hospital, helping to make what can be a frightening time, a little less daunting for them.”

The money was raised by County Council staff and Nottinghamshire residents through a range of events such as including the County Council waste contractor Veolia’s Recycle for Charity Campaign, raffles, a hog roast and sponsored events during Councillor Saddington’s term of office as Chairman, which ran from May 2018 – May 2019.
