Is there a social media hashtag?

There sure is! Please use #TeamTheo.


How do I fundraise?

When you register for the challenge, you will also be encouraged to set up your personal fundraising page. Once set-up you can let your family, friends, relatives, co-workers, classmates and neighbours know that you are giving/taking something up for Sheffield Children’s and share with them your fundraising goals and ask them for a specific donation. Remember, it’s for a really good cause. You will be surprised how many will support your efforts.

Or think outside the box – how about give up buying that coffee each day or taking the bus to work every day and donate yourself what you would usually spend on this a day.

What is the fundraising target?

We are asking each person to try and raise £50 each. This can help make a huge difference to Sheffield Children’s Hospital. This is not a requirement but every little helps!

Where will my fundraising go?

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is a specialist children’s hospital, providing world-class care for children all over Yorkshire and across the UK. The Children’s Hospital Charity makes Sheffield Children’s Hospital even better, by creating an environment built with children in mind. Your money raised will go where it is most needed at the time in the hospital – currently we are working towards the new Cancer and Leukaemia Ward which is in need of redevelopment.

How do I pay in my money?

Ask people to donate directly to your online fundraising page. That way the money will automatically come direct to us and you don’t have to chase anyone to collect their money (please note online fundraising pages will take an admin fee off your overall sponsorship raised). If you’ve collected cash then you can pay the money in by sending a cheque made payable to ‘The Children’s Hospital Charity’ at The Children’s Hospital Charity, Western Bank, Sheffield S10 2TH. You can also send your money in via bank transfer, please email us at [email protected] for details of how to do this. If you’re collecting offline donations please ask your supporters to fill out a Sponsorship Form and tick the Gift Aid Box, if applicable.
