Posted 13th September 2012 - Posted in Club News Sick Childrens Trust Fun Day at Hallam

On Sunday 16th September  Hallam FC hosted a Fun Day on behalf of the Sick Childrens Trust from 12 Noon until 4 PM.

With the backing of Bafta nominated actor Dominic West, The Sick Children’s Trust has launched an ambitious new appeal - Branching Out - growing their support for families in Sheffield - to raise £1.2m for a vital new ‘Home from Home’ at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

With your help and support they can make this challenge a reality and make a real difference to the families of children receiving specialist treatment in the Critical Care and Neonatal Surgical Units for serious or life-threatening illness. Their hope is that this new house will open in spring 2013, providing vital support to an additional 250 families per year.

Those familiar with Sheffield Children’s Hospital may know that Treetop House their thirteen bedroom ‘Home from Home’ is already up and running on the top floor of the hospital but this is simply not big enough to care for the increasing number of families that need accommodation close to their sick child’s bedside. In addition, the hospital is soon to build a new Clinical Care Block which will increase paediatric bed capacity from 140 to 200 and bring even greater demand for parent and family accommodation.
 

This is your chance to help and have a family fun day out at the same time.
