The Bears are here!
Start collecting the Bears of Sheffield and enjoy Sheffield and its surrounding areas.
The Bears of Sheffield are here! The trail officially starts on Monday 12th July - 29th September and we can not wait for you to meet all of our Bears. The Bears will support Sheffield Children's where it is needed most, which is currently to transform the Cancer and Leukaemia Ward.
You will meet 100 little bears decorated by talented school children of all ages from schools across the region. Plus 60 big bear sculptures brought to life by professional local and international artists as well as a special Theo sculpture in the Winter Gardens.
Dr Dan Yeomanson, Consultant Paediatric Oncologist at Sheffield Children’s Hospital added: “It is really exciting to see work now underway. I am really proud of the care we deliver on Ward 6, but this appeal is about the patient experience and that’s why the charity funding is so important.
“The NHS provides a level of kit and specification which is effective, and The Children’s Hospital Charity’s support will allow us transform the whole department, improving families’ experience of the care, and help make an extremely stressful time easier to manage.”
The ward is being funded through generous donations from families, individuals, organisations and Trusts. But, we are still busy raising money as we have until November to fully fund the project. The Bears of Sheffield sculpture trail coming this summer will play a key role in reaching our final £2.75 million target. PACT are also supporting the project by fundraising towards the Parent room on the new ward.
We still need your help to make the new ward the best it can be for our patients and families. You can even sponsor a room on the ward!
We are raising money to transform our Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children's. Making the facilities brighter and more modern for patients undergoing treatment, like Izzie. Izzie was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in January 2019 and after six months of chemotherapy and treatment she was able to ring the bell to mark the end of her treatment and entering remission. Her regular visits to our hospital and stays on our Cancer Ward motivated her to raise money to help make the facilities on the ward the best they can be for children who are poorly in future, with her friends and family she raised over £14,000!
