NHS Lincolnshire Events – NHS 75

On 5 July 2023, the NHS marked 75 years of service. We celebrated this milestone by showcasing the best of the NHS and encouraged as many of you as possible to join in with our NHS 75 activities. Please see below the events which took place in Lincolnshire.

Parkrun for the NHS

On Saturday 8th July hundreds of people ran, jogged, and walked, as the NHS in Lincolnshire teamed up with local parkruns to ‘parkrun for the NHS’ on its 75th anniversary.

Everyone was encouraged to wear blue to celebrate this major milestone in the NHS’s history and acknowledge all of the staff and volunteers, past and present, who have made the NHS what it is today.

The Big Tea

On Saturday United Lincolnshire Hospitals Charity held their NHS Big Tea event in partnership with Lincoln City Foundation, which was hosted at Lincoln City Football Club.

In the morning people enjoyed refreshments, we held a raffle and other fundraising activities. There was also the offer of a Mini Health MOT which measured blood pressure, height, weight, and BMI.

In the afternoon we held a charity football match between ULHT staff and a Lincoln City Foundation XI.

It was a great game of football played in a competitive spirit with the NHS Team winning 5-1, the real winners were the charities with over £300 raised for United Lincolnshire Hospitals Charity and Lincoln City Foundation.
