There are a number of events to get involved with, from thrilling skydives and mountain treks, to bike rides and marathons.

The hospital charity is also holding social events, including an Ascot Race Day in the summer and pub quizzes throughout the year.

People can fundraise for a ward or department at a local hospital and all the money raised will go towards helping patients, their families and staff.

The hospital charity is excited to have charity places on England’s only 100-mile closed road bike ride in 2024, the Ford RideLondon, taking place in May.

The ride starts at Westminster Bridge and takes in many of London’s landmarks before going into the beautiful countryside in Essex and finishing back in Central London at Tower Bridge.

The hospital charity has a limited number of Charity places for the 100-mile bike ride as well as the 60 mile ride.

The hospital charity has also launched a Northern Lights Trek in Iceland in November. Immerse in Iceland's wonders: geothermal springs, volcanic mountains, and the mesmerizing Northern Lights.

There are also more local events to take part in, such as the Great Birmingham Run in May. Join thousands of runners on the streets of Birmingham in Midlands’ biggest and best running event and take on a 10k or a half marathon.

Liam Herbert, Paediatric, teenager and young adult specialist therapeutic radiographer at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham said: “I’ve seen firsthand the amazing work the hospital Charity does.

“I support children and young people undergoing cancer treatment and without the Charity I’d find my job nearly impossible.

“The QE Hospital Birmingham Charity is able to help us go above and beyond by helping us provide items like personal blankets to keep patients warm during treatment and supplying accommodation for patients and their families who have a long drive to get to the hospital.

“If you are willing to take part in an event, it’s a great way to give something back and support the Charity.”
