PACT Sheffield


Hello everyone!

This week we have been able to give away another £1000 to PACT Sheffield.

PACT is a charity which offers emotional and practical support to the children and the families of children who are undergoing treatment for cancer or leukaemia at Sheffield Children's Hospital on Ward 6. PACT own a house close to the hospital which provides a 'home from home' where families can stay overnight, use the cooking facilities or just go for a little bit of time to themselves whilst their child is receiving treatment at the hospital. PACT House enables the family unit to be kept together at the most difficult of times.

PACT also provides breakfast and lunch to parents on Ward 6 as they are often unable to leave their children to go and buy food. They also arrange trips throughout the year - including a theme park trip, bowling and a Christmas party. And they offer each family £60 towards a family day out up to 3 times a year. They also own 3 holiday caravans and offer them to families to allow them to get away and spend time together and create special memories.

Our £1000 will enable them to continue giving this amazing support to children suffering from cancer and their families.

In the photo you can see PACT's members of staff with one of the patients on Ward 6. From left to right are Jo Kent, Beryl Welburn, Owen Jenkinson and Nicola Brown.

Thank you again for your amazing and ongoing support which is making such a difference to so many lives across the city. Please do keep nominating charities and good causes - we are looking forward to helping many more of them in the coming weeks...

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
