Iconic Sheffield condiment company, Henderson’s Relish, has released a limited edition bottle to raise money for The Children’s Hospital Charity.

The bottles, filled with spicy sauce at the firm’s Parkway factory, will hit shelves this week and features the charity’s loveable mascot, Theo bear.

Charity director David Vernon-Edwards said: “We are so honoured that Henderson’s have chosen to support us in such a brilliant way by making and selling these bottles. We hope that as many people as possible go out and buy one to help make it better for our children.”

5p from teh sale of each bottle will go to the charity’s Make it Better appeal, which aims to raise £10m by 2016 to transform The Children’s Hospital with a brand new wing. The appeal will pay for spacious wards, plenty of private bedrooms, a secure outdoor courtyard and a place for the children to play. It will also help bring the UK’s first fully digital intraoperative 3T MRI scanner to Sheffield, making The Children’s Hospital a world-leader in the treatment of brain tumours in children.

Pat Byrne, general manager at Henderson’s, said: “The Children’s Hospital Charity is such a brilliant cause and we want to be a part of that.”
