Could you, your business, school or community group sponsor a snowflake for Sheffield Children's? There are lots of locations available across Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

Celebrating 20 years of snowflakes!

It's never too early to get in touch about your 2024 snowflake. 

Book yours now or email us at [email protected] to enquire.

This year is extra special as we celebrate the twentieth anniversary of our iconic snowflakes. We are so grateful for each and every contribution! Since it started in 2004, our award-winning snowflake display has raised over £2.5m for Sheffield Children’s.

In return for pledging to raise funds, each sponsor sees their snowflake sparkle on one of our sites across South Yorkshire, with an attached name tag recognising your contribution for all to see.

The initiative brings people together with a shared goal to change the lives of children and their families, and ensure the team at Sheffield Children’s has exactly what they want, when they need it, to deliver the best possible care for its patients.

The money raised by businesses, schools, community groups, families and individuals will make a real difference to the lives of children and their families who visit Sheffield Children's.

A look back on last year

In 2023, our twinkling snowflakes raised over £377K for Sheffield Children's Hospital, supporting our £2million fundraising appeal towards the build of the new National Centre for Child Health Technology, a world-class research and technology centre at The Olympic Legacy Park, that will be run by Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. Take a look to see how magical our switch on was in 2023!

Lesley Wainwright, Chair, Gripple Foundation

"We’re delighted to continue our support of the wonderful care given by The Children’s Hospital Charity in Sheffield. We are a local company and the hospital has provided superb care for many of our colleagues' children over the years. The snowflake appeal is a lovely way for us to be able to show our gratitude and appreciation for our city’s outstanding children’s hospital."

    Adam Gillet, Penistone Grammar School

    "We are proud every year to support the incredible Sheffield Children’s Hospital as it has supported so many of our students, staff and wider community. We love fundraising for the snowflake, our students get so involved and come up with some amazing ideas - from bike rides to head shaving and everything in-between! Being at the light switch on at the start of December is the highlight of our year - seeing the difference we have made and hopefully making a brighter Christmas for those inside."

      Mark Kanaris, Tesco Store Manager, Tesco Infirmary Road

      "At Tesco we are extremely proud to support the snowflake appeal. Year upon year we have felt humbled to see the tremendous difference our support makes to the lives of the young patients at the hospital and their families. It brings our City and the wider regions together, creating a real sense of shared purpose and true community spirit. It’s a spectacular moment when we see those amazing snowflakes light up the winter sky for all to see. One of those moments you will share with your children and grandchildren for years to come."
