Chantry Place links arrival of giant rainbow to fundraising for the NHS

The recently installed giant illuminated rainbow on Chantry Square will be used to help to raise awareness and funds for The Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital, part of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) NHS Foundation Trust, Chantry Place has announced.

Paul McCarthy, General Manager at Chantry Place, 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.

Head of Fundraising at NNUH, Louise Cook, 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.”

Lucy Weavers, Nurse Director for the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital added: “I hope that the Rainbow makes everyone smile and encourages people to give a little to support their local Children’s Hospital.”

Chantry Place is currently open for essential shops, delivery, takeaway and Click & Collect services, with non-essential retailers and outdoor seating at restaurants on Chantry Square planning to reopen on Monday 12th April 2021.

The rainbow, recognised as a symbol of hope and of better times to come, lights up and can change colour, and is a new outdoor feature on the Square. People can donate at the 5.8 metre wide by 2.4 metre high rainbow using a QR code.

Visitors to the rainbow are encouraged to use #ChantryPlaceRainbow when sharing photos of the rainbow on Instagram.

  • Broadland D.C donates iPads to help Covid-19 hospital patients keep in touch.

    Forty iPads are being donated by Broadland District Council to help patients on the Covid-19 wards of Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital keep in touch with their families during isolation.

    Deputy Council Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance, Cllr Trudy Mancini-Boyle said the role of Councillors is to support the community and what better way than helping keep families together by being connected during this difficult time.

    Cllr. Mancini-Boyle said: “ I cannot imagine what it must be like to be poorly in hospital and not able to see your family. We wanted to support the hospital in their efforts to keep people in touch with their loved ones – albeit virtually - and donating the iPads made sense. The old iPads are available as a result of the Councils ongoing programme to refresh IT equipment after 5 years. They are perfect for keeping people in touch e.g. via Facetime, Skype or other remote communication tools. It seemed a much better use of resources to donate them to where they can make a difference to the lives of local patients and their families.”
