Cystic Fibrosis: Supporting the Nottingham Hospitals Charity appeal
The Chairman of the County Council, Councillor Carol Pepper, has chosen to support the Nottingham Hospital’s Charity appeal to build a new cystic fibrosis centre as the focus of her fundraising events during her year in office.
The Nottingham Hospitals Charity has to raise £2.1 million to build the state-of-the-art centre at Nottingham City Hospital.
Thanks to a £700,000 donation from the Wolfson family, the building's future is now 100% secure. Money being raised now will further enhance the facilities being provided.
Most cystic fibrosis patients have regular and/or lengthy stays in hospital. The new centre will completely transform the treatment of patients in Nottinghamshire, providing all the services they need under one roof.
Chairman of the County Council, Councillor Carol Pepper, said "I am very honoured to be able to use my term in office to support the Nottingham Hospitals Cystic Fibrosis Campaign.
"The Nottingham Hospitals Charity campaign for a new Cystic Fibrosis centre will transform the treatment of sufferers from throughout Nottinghamshire and it is something I am thrilled to be supporting.
"I was inspired to support the charity after I met Lisa Hollins, an administration assistant at the County Council and cystic fibrosis sufferer. After hearing what Lisa had been through and her determined attitude - in her words that "the disease doesn't control me, I control the disease" – I knew this had to be the charity for my year in office.
