Fundraiser for helipad at Sheffield Children’s hospital launched to support emergency services

17 March 2022

Sheffield City Trust and Sheffield Children’s Hospital aimed to raise a total of £6m to construct a new helipad on the hospital’s roof after the partnership launched on 9 March.

 An extra £1, £3, or £5 contribution will be made when a ticket is purchased via Sheffield City Hall and Utilita Arena Sheffield. 

Sophie Coburn, Corporate Partnerships Officer at The Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We are proud to be an official partner of Sheffield City Trust, the Health and Wellbeing Charity, striving to support the physical and emotional wellbeing of Sheffielders.”

Building a new helipad on the roof of the Children’s Hospital can ensure children get emergency care on time.

The charity and city trust will split the funds while any surplus money raised from ticket sales will be used to support patients at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Dom Stokes, Head of Live Events and Venues for Sheffield City Trust, said: “Sheffield City Trust is delighted to be supporting The Children’s Hospital Charity. Every donation makes a massive difference.

“Sheffield City Trust is a great organisation. It brings businesses in the city coming together. I believe this new fundraising initiative will be a game changer for both charities.

“We are united in the mission to helping children become and then more importantly stay happy and healthy.”

Sheffield City Trust and Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity have been looking to partner with other organisations. 

Grace Staples-Burton, Marketing and Communications Assistant at The Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We have currently reached £3m. When we reach the total of £6m, we will continue this partnership to raise more money to support children.”
