Each year, DDC Outsourcing Solutions choose a local charity to support through a number of internal fundraising activities. During 2015 & 2016 we were proud supporters of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, last year alone raising £3660!

After recent discussions and a vote, it has been decided our charity of 2017 will be, The Children’s Hospital Charity (Sheffield). They raise money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital in order to go above and beyond the NHS provision. One of only four specialist children’s hospitals in the UK, they ensure the services remain at the forefront of paediatric care. They target four key areas; investing in research, new facilities, improving the hospital environment and specialist equipment.

Our HR Director, Marie Sandler, who has close connections to this charity has commented on their work; “My beautiful step-granddaughter, Emelia arrived in the world under dramatic circumstances in November 2015. Since then, the Sheffield Children’s Hospital has been like a second home, every month there are a number of appointments – check-ups, specialist reviews, biopsies for further surgery, physiotherapy and an intensive treatment plan for the future.

The Sheffield Children’s Hospital staff are amazing – they care for each child as their own, they support families during difficult times, and make sure there is always a friendly face around! I know that they have all played a critical part in Emelia’s life, and whilst it is their job, for us it’s about changing and improving her life! Thank you!”
