The addition to the copper sculpture marks a £1,078,519.30 donation given to the charity by the family of farmer Douglas de Bootman, who left the sum to Cromer Hospital in his will.
Louise Cook, N&N Hospitals charity head of fundraising, said: “Once a leaf has been purchased, it will be a part of the tree for at least three years.
“Your leaf will be engraved with your message, name or dates as an unique way to remember a special person or occasion.
“All money raised from the leaves will go to our Cromer Fund which directly benefits patients, visitors and staff to Cromer Hospital site.”
