This week saw the launch of Sheffield’s very own bear trail in support of Sheffield Children’s.

The trail is organised by The Children’s Hospital Charity as part of their fundraising drive to build a new Cancer and Leukaemia ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. It comprises of 60 Big Bears, standing at 2.1m tall, which are sponsored by local businesses, organisations and families, as well as 100 Little Bears which have been fundraised for and decorated by schools, nurseries and colleges. There is also an extra special Theo Bear sculpture, The Children’s Hospital’s Charity’s mascot.

To celebrate the launch of the official trail on Monday (12th July), patients, families and staff created a mini-trail at Sheffield Children’s, in the Western Bank site’s courtyard.

Each sculpture was painted and decorated by the wards and departments, including the neonatal surgical unit, infant feeding team, Paediatric Critical Care Unit (PCCU), the Becton Centre, Ward 2, Burns Unit, Radiology, Pharmacy and the Ryegate Centre.

They will now remain in areas which are only accessible to patients and families already in the Trust as well as staff working there, to ensure even those staying in hospital for treatment don’t miss out on the fun of the trail this summer.
