Fundraising

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 you are participating, 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.

What is the fundraising target?

There is no set fundraising target for our events, we just asked our supporters to raise as much as they can. This can help make a huge difference to Sheffield Children’s Hospital and we’ll send you a fundraising pack filled with things to help you raise as much as you can.

However, there maybe a reward if you raise a certain amount. Just click on the event you would like to take part in to find out more. 

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. The newest addition is a new wing which opened in April 2018 following a £10m investment from The Children’s Hospital Charity. But that’s not the end of the story, we aren’t finished, we still need to build a better future for our children by redeveloping the Emergency Department (ED), Child Assessment Unit (CAU) and Ward 6 as well as a building a brand new Helipad.

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 events@tchc.org.uk 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.
