At Sheffield Children’s, our world-leading clinicians have stepped forward every day, continuing to provide life-changing care for children during the biggest public health emergency of our lifetimes.

In the midst of it all, The Children’s Hospital Charity has been there to support the hospital and there is still much more to do. The pandemic has affected everyone in different ways and we all want to make sure that the charity can continue to support Sheffield Children’s and the families it serves.

Among its countless specialisms, Sheffield Children’s is a pioneering centre for neurosurgery, hosts the UK’s leading Sleep Service and receives new-born screening referrals from around the world. Internationally renowned for spinal surgery, rheumatology care and the treatment of brittle bone disease, Sheffield Children’s has the largest Metabolic Bone Disease service in Western Europe.

However, many charity events have been cancelled which were all due to raise vital funds. The need for these funds hasn’t gone away, they remain absolutely vital to upgrade our Cancer Ward, expand and develop our Emergency Department which remains open 24 hours a day, and build a new Helipad on the hospital’s roof.

Thank you,

The Charity Team x
