A cheque for £60,000 has been donated to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital by mattress and bedding company Sleepeezee following successful sales of their Jessica range in 2021.
Named after brand ambassador Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill, the Jessica range is perfect for those with an active lifestyle. With each mattress sold, Sleepeezee donated £20 to the children’s hospital.
The money will help to provide first class equipment, support the opening of new facilities and fund vital research to change young people’s lives. It’s a charity close to the heart of the London 2012 Olympic champion. She says: “It was an honour to present the Sheffield Children’s Hospital with our donation from the Jessica range at Sleepeezee. As a proud patron of the hospital charity, it’s amazing to support people that make such a difference to so many children and young people’s lives.”
Sheffield Children’s Hospital provides a comprehensive range of care for children and young people in Sheffield and beyond. Their care focuses on local services for general children’s health, such as health visiting and school nursing through to highly specialised world-leading services. Tchad Western, business development manager and ‘Chief Fun Officer’ at The Children’s Hospital Charity tells how the funds can be used: “We are so grateful for this incredible donation from Sleepeezee from the sales of their Jessica mattresses. Currently, air ambulances have to land across the road from the hospital in the park.
“Having a helipad on our roof would mean patients needing urgent care could arrive in the hospital more quickly when every second counts, and with more privacy during a critical situation. Thank you so much to both Sleepeezee and our charity patron, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill, for helping to make this possible and for getting us one step closer to achieving our dream of building the helipad.” Sleepeezee managing director Steve Warren adds: “ We are delighted to be making this donation to Sheffield Children’s Hospital and are proud to support the incredible work carried out by all the staff and team at the hospital. As a charity close to our brand ambassador, we couldn’t think of a more apt donation to celebrate another successful year of the Jessica Collection.”
