AN OFFICIAL launch took place in Sheffield yesterday to mark the start of The Children’s Hospital Charity’s biggest fundraising campaign.
The “Make It Better” campaign has a target of raising £20m towards the hospital’s £40m transformation, which will include replacing some existing wards and creating more single rooms to give families “space, privacy and dignity.”
Charity director David Vernon-Edwards said: “When my daughter was rushed to hospital the care we received was amazing. They saved her life.
“I know that what families need now is a world-class environment that matches the world-class care they expect at our hospital.”
A dedicated website – www.make-it-better.org.uk – was also due to become live yesterday.
