COVID-19 Appeal

Your support is needed now more than ever, staff at Sheffield Children’s are going above and beyond to care and protect some of our most vulnerable members of society. This is why we are launching our COVID-19 Appeal.

Dear supporter,

I hope that you and those you care about are staying safe and well in these unprecedented times. You are likely to be facing challenges you never imagined - teaching your children at home, working remotely, social distancing. 

Our NHS heroes are going above and beyond the call of duty to care for and protect the most vulnerable members of society. The NHS is fighting COVID-19 for the country and over 1,500 frontline staff at Sheffield Children’s continue to work day and night for some of those most at risk during this crisis as well as many more working from home.

Together we continue to care for some of those most at risk during this crisis, including children, young patients and those with underlying health conditions. Our doctors and nurses treat every condition imaginable, battling the most complex illnesses to save lives. They do this every day. 

We have increased capacity across the hospital, including doubling the number of intensive care beds, so that we can support NHS hospitals across the region. We are now carrying out all emergency children’s surgery that would have taken place at surrounding hospitals across Yorkshire and beyond.

Can I ask you today, to join them and go above and beyond for families in our care?

Make a donation

We are fortunate to have the most wonderful, loyal and caring supporters. Many of you have been training for events that have been cancelled or postponed because of the crisis. However, this means the charity is currently not able to raise money for the hospital which affects our ability to support its staff, and their amazing work is going to be impacted. 

We have launched our emergency COVID-19 appeal to help support the hospital, its staff, and the amazing children being cared for. 

By donating what you can, or by setting up a regular monthly gift, you will be supporting those who need help at this most critical time as well as those who will still need help once this crisis is all over.

If you are unable to support us at this time we understand and thank you for your generous support to date.

Please take care,

David Vernon-Edwards
