Sheffield snowflake display expands across city
The snowflakes are coming! Each year, Sheffield Children’s Hospital is lit up with sparkling snowflakes sponsored by generous businesses, schools, community groups and individuals, and this year, the twinkling display is expanding even further across the region.
In the run up to Christmas, snowflakes will not only be visible on the side of Sheffield Children’s but will also be available to sponsor on Sheffield City Hall, Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre, St John’s Church at Owlerton and the Alhambra Centre in Barnsley.
Over the past eight years, the display has raised over £1million for Sheffield Children’s. This year, more than 210 snowflakes have already been sponsored and as the autumn months begin, the charity is calling on your support to sponsor a snowflake and help raise the money to build a Helipad on the roof at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Tchad Western, Chief Fun Officer, said “Over the years the snowflake displays have helped to fund specialist equipment and new facilities at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. This year, the money raised will go towards our appeal to build a Helipad on the roof of the hospital. Every penny raised through snowflake sponsorship really does make a big impact.”
Sponsors will see their name next to a twinkling snowflake and are invited to watch the lights be switched on.
