Charity work continues apace to boost hospitals

Have your say

A CHARITY held an open evening to tell people about their fundraising projects and appeals.

The Sheffield Hospitals Charity organised the event at the Rutland Hotel in Broomhill which also welcomed Chris Fry, a patient and managing partner of Unity Law. He is a past president of Sheffield Law Society and brought along a cheque for almost £2,500 raised by the group.

Chris spoke about his experiences as a patient on the haematology unit at the Hallamshire Hospital, while Caroline Nicholson, matron of the special care baby unit, gave a talk on projects at the unit funded by the charity.

Dr Frank Edenborough, lead consultant of the new cystic fibrosis unit at the Northern General Hospital, also gave a talk about how patients have benefited from The Star-backed Cystic Fibrosis Appeal, run by the charity.

Emma Dickens, head of fundraising at the charity, said: “It is very important to us as Sheffield’s NHS charity, that our donors, no matter what area of our work they have supported, know that there money is being put to the best possible use and that it really is making a difference to patients across Sheffield.

“And to receive a cheque from a year of fundraising by the Sheffield Law Society was a fabulous added bonus.”
