Work has officially begun to transform our Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children's and it's all thanks to you!
Patients at Sheffield Children’s will soon have a bigger brighter space for their treatment for cancer, leukaemia and blood disorders, as work gets underway to transform their ward thanks to our incredible supporters.
As well as creating a larger, brighter space, there will be a bigger and better playroom situated in the heart of the ward. It will maximise the view of Weston Park, making patients feel connected to the outside whilst they are getting better. There will also be improved spaces for parents to stay with their children.

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!
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!
