21st July 2021

The Children's Hospital Charity, based in Sheffield launched the official countdown to funding of the new £2.75m Cancer and Leukaemia Ward 6 for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

One of only three specialist children’s hospitals in the UK, the quality of care at the hospital is testament to the skill and dedication of staff, the generosity of donors and the courage of the children and their families.

Tchad Western, Corporate Partnerships Manager and Chief Fun Officer at The Children’s Hospital Charity said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Storopack for their continued support and this incredibly generous donation of £5,000. Alongside multiple other donors, this money will help build a new single en-suite patient bedroom on the Cancer and Leukaemia ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. “They are also very generously taking part in the Bearathon. This challenge, alongside the Bears of Sheffield sculpture trail, presents a real opportunity for everyone to play their part in changing young people’s lives for generations to come. It will play a crucial role in reaching our target for the new ward; building work is already underway but it is only the generosity of the community and businesses like Storopack that will see it completed."

The Children's Hospital Charity is the chosen charity of local packaging supplier Storopack UK who have been making donations to the charity since 2018.

Richard Pulfrey - Storopack Managing Director comments “The Storopack Group is fully committed to supporting charitable causes.  We recognise the necessity of providing a welcoming place for families to stay along with the critical services required when a child is in hospital, and we are delighted our donation will go some way towards the building of the new crucial ward.

The Storopack staff are also keen to raise funds for the charity through their involvement with The Children’s Hospital Charity 2021 “Bearathon” challenge and aim to raise over £300 in 30 days.  The challenge requires participants to take part in a daily exercise plan for one day per month. By getting active, walking, running dancing or any form of exercise.
