Bears of Sheffield

Remember the elephant sculptures from the Herd of Sheffield? The sculpture trail is back for another year as bears are set to take to the streets of Sheffield in 2020.

This exciting new project is brought to you by The Children’s Hospital Charity and will unite businesses, communities, artists and schools throughout the city and across the country, leaving a lasting legacy for years to come.

The Herd of Sheffield raised over £610,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital with 58 large and 72 small elephants and we hope to raise even more for our hospital through the Bears of Sheffield.

All funds raised through the Bears of Sheffield will help to transform the Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. The ward treats children from babies through to 19 year olds from South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and as far south as Northampton. The transformed ward would create a new home from home for families with space, privacy and natural light to make hospital stays and isolation a place of sanctuary and calm.
