Every penny raised through the Bears of Sheffield will support our appeal to build a new Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children's.

The ward provides treatment for cancer and blood disorders in children from babies through to 19-year-olds in South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. It also sees patients from across the UK for chemotherapy, operations, and bone marrow transplants.

You can support the Bears of Sheffield this summer by purchasing a trail map, doing your own bear-themed fundraising, making a donation and more. Keep an eye out for lots of exciting ways to get involved. 

We hope the Bears will bring some happiness and joy to the city and give us all a reason to celebrate.

Your donations help change the lives of children like Izzie

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!
