Our Appeal to you
Our doctors and nurses treat every condition imaginable, battling the most complex illnesses to save lives. They do this every day and every day we can make a difference.
At Sheffield Children’s, our world-leading clinicians have stepped forward every day, continuing to provide life-changing care for children, from an ever-expanding geographical area during the biggest public health emergency of our lifetimes.
Every day during the coronavirus pandemic brings new challenges to Sheffield Children’s and the hospital continues to care for some of the country’s most vulnerable children.
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.
However, many charity events have been cancelled over the coming months, which were all due to raise vital funds for our capital appeal.
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.
From the Bears of Sheffield sculpture trail to marathons, walks, charity balls, bake sales and raffles, the ways in which had been planned to reach out and raise support are no longer possible.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, by the end of the financial year the charity is looking at a decline in fundraising of almost £3million. Having forecast to raise £4.6million by March 2021, it is more likely to raise £2million.
The less raised, the longer patients at Sheffield Children’s will have to wait- for the traffic light to change so air ambulance arrivals can cross the road to access lifesaving treatment, in an Emergency Department built for half those attending and on a Cancer and Leukaemia ward without space to play or a parent to sleep comfortably next to their child.

Sheffield Children’s needs you now more than ever. During the pandemic, our staff have still been caring for children and families who need them, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Before the coronavirus pandemic, The Children’s Hospital Charity were fundraising for a new Cancer and Leukaemia ward, Emergency Department and Helipad. These projects are still vital and so is your support. If you can, please support our hospital today and help make these projects a reality for the patients, families and staff at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
