Christmas with Sheffield Children's

How to support Sheffield Children's this Christmas

Hold on for deer life, Christmas is coming! It’s snow joke - we hope all of your friends, family and colleagues will get into the festive spirit for Sheffield Children’s.

Christmas would normally be a time when we all get together and celebrate the season but sadly, this year will be a little different. But we won’t let that get in the way of us elfing around and supporting Sheffield Children's when it is needed most! There’s lots of ways to get involved this Christmas and spread some Christmas cheer.

National Elf Service - Join our National Elf Service and fundraise this Christmas for your National Health Service. Dress up, bake, hold a Christmas jumper day or host a virtual quiz– how you raise the pounds is up to you. All we ask is you get elfy to help our patients stay healthy!

Glow Run - This Christmas, Team Theo’s Glow Run is going virtual! Get out those Christmas jumpers, elf hats and glow your way round your local area for Sheffield Children’s this Christmas!

Snowflakes - Could you, your school, your business or your friends and family sponsor a snowflake for Sheffield Children's this year? See your name next to a sparkling Snowflake and support Sheffield Children’s this Christmas.

Theo's Big Christmas Quiz - Our online Quiz is back for a one-off festive special!  Streamed live on Youtube, join us on Friday 18th December at 7.30pm for Team Theo's Big Christmas Quiz.

Christmas Shop – We can’t give hugs as usual this Christmas, but there's lots of ways to send a virtual hug by shopping on our Online Shop this Christmas. From Theo Greeting Cards, to festive elves and a bespoke Christmas Card design by Artfelt patron and Sheffield favourite, Pete McKee, browse our Christmas range to support Sheffield Children's today.

Christmas Carol Concert - We are excited to announce that this Christmas we have something extra special in the calendar! Join us on Sunday 20th December from 5pm for a virtual Christmas carols concert live from Weston-super-Mare with special musical guests.

  • How do I donate Christmas presents?

    Christmas is coming, and while we are SO grateful for all lovely donations of gifts and toys, the best gift you can give Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Trust is a donation. Every pound you donate will help change a child’s life. The Play Specialists within the Trust are best placed to purchase gifts which are age & gender appropriate for patients. A donation to the Play Team means they are able to help children throughout the year and not just at Christmas.

    • Play Specialist Fund: All the money raised for this fund will allow our Play Specialists to buy the perfect toys for patients to enjoy! If you would like to donate to this fund please click here for instructions about how you can donate.
    • Donating gifts: If you would like to donate gifts please follow the link to find out more
  • How do I pay in my Fundraising?

    Donations and fundraising can be made through the donate function on our website or by BACS payment. If you would like our bank transfer details, please contact us at Once your donation has been processed you will receive a thank you letter and certificate by e-mail for your fundraising. 

  • Can I help from the Hospital?

    If you're fundraising as part of a Ward or Department from the hospital - that's amazing! We'd love to hear what you're up to. Just get in touch at or call: 0114 321 2470.
