History of Volunteer Association to NGH and NHNH

Although a group of volunteers had been raising funds and sewing for three years before the Hospital officially opened, our present organization is based upon the Women's Aid which was formally constituted in 1925. In 1938 the two groups became the nucleus of a new organization called the Hospital Auxiliary, which operated until 1966 when a county Executive Board to the Auxiliary to Norfolk General Hospital was formed and a new constitution was drawn up.

When the Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home opened in 1975, the volunteer services were extended to the Nursing Home and we became the Auxiliary to Norfolk General Hospital and the Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home. In April 1992, due to the increase of male volunteers, our name was again changed to its present form - The Volunteer Association to Norfolk General Hospital and Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home.
