Tiger Eye announce Charity of the Year for 2021
The team at Tiger Eye are delighted to announce The Boudicca Appeal has been selected as their charity of the year for 2021, with the charity being nominated for the second year running.
Following a staff vote, The Boudicca Appeal was once again chosen for its vital work in the Norfolk community. The Tiger Eye Team will make The Boudicca Appeal the focus of fundraising efforts for 2021. Whilst the pandemic and lockdown may make fundraising events and projects more difficult, Tiger Eye look forward to generating vital funds for the appeal where possible.
The Boudicca Appeal, one of many programmes under the Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals Charity umbrella, aims to raise funds for a new dedicated breast cancer unit at the NNUH. Over the past five years, the current breast cancer unit has seen an 80% increase in patient numbers, meaning that as it stands, the current unit is unable to provide same-day diagnosis to all visitors.
With the NHS facing its biggest challenge in 72 years in its battle against the coronavirus, resources are already strained, and the unit is of critical importance. With the pandemic at hand, the need to provide same-day diagnostic tests is crucial, in order to reduce stress and anxiety for breast cancer patients by removing tough wait times between referrals, tests and diagnoses for the 7,000+ women and men who are referred each year.
So far, The Boudicca Appeal has raised £440.4K - 55% of its £800K target. Tiger Eye look forward to supporting The Boudicca Appeal in getting closer to achieving their goal.
