Putting the lights up

Sheffield, UK, based access specialist Elev8 Access has donated the use of one of its truck mounted lifts to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Trust for the installation of its fund raising lights – part of its ‘Snow flake Appeal’ to raise funds for diseases affecting children, including: Cerebral palsy, ADHD, Leukaemia, Asthma and Diabetes.

The hospital is looking to raise £250,000 to continue to fund further research projects which it hopes will lead to the cure and the prevention of more childhood illness.

The ‘switch on’ of the lights was delayed due to the recent bad weather, but last night Heptathlon gold medallist Jessica Ennis switched them on with help of one-year-old Carter Whitlam, a patient at the hospital, before visiting the wards.

The lights go on

In the snowflakes appeal in which companies or individuals can buy a large snowflake light on the outside of the building, while smaller individual snowflakes carrying the donor’s name, are pasted on the hospital windows. The fundraising effort has so far raised £14,500 this year with all of the money going directly into the hospital’s children’s research programmes.

If you are located in the area you may wish to join in with the fund raising activities of this dynamic hospital.
