Our appeal to you: Building a Better Future

You can help shape the future of Sheffield Children’s

Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist children’s hospital, providing the best possible care for children all over Yorkshire, the UK and beyond. The Children’s Hospital Charity support the hospital by creating new facilities and building an environment with children in mind. By supporting The Children’s Hospital Charity, you can make Sheffield Children’s even better, by creating an environment equipped for an unpredictable future.

Together we need to ensure our doctors and nurses have exactly what they want, when they need it to deliver the best care for our patients. They treat every condition imaginable battling the most complex illnesses. Every day they make a difference and you can too.

We’re working hard to build a better future for everyone who visits our hospital, by fundraising for a new Emergency Department (ED), Child Assessment Unit (CAU) and Cancer and Leukaemia ward (Ward 6) as well as a building a new Helipad.

The events of the past few months have shown just how much we all need and value our NHS. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Sheffield Children’s has continued to provide care for children and young people from across the UK and around the world every day.

Building a Better Future

Sheffield Children’s prides itself on delivering the best possible care for thousands of children every week, making sure they have the best possible experience. But together we can go further and we need your help to redevelop the environment they are treated in.

You can help build a better future for the up to 200 children a day who visit our Emergency Department, the 90 patients a year who are treated on our Cancer and Leukaemia Ward as well as the Major Trauma patients who arrive via helicopter when every second counts.

Our events have been cancelled, our supporters have had to postpone fundraisers and many businesses and schools supporting our efforts remain closed.

From marathons and walks, to charity balls, bake sales and raffles, the ways in which we had planned and had always reached out to you to help our hospital are no longer possible.

The less we raise together, the longer patients at Sheffield Children’s will have to wait for the environment they deserve. These projects are vital and so is your support.
