The Children’s Hospital Charity

The Children’s Hospital Charity is a local cause close to our hearts.  This charity raises funds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital, funding life-saving equipment, new facilities, a comfortable environment for the children who use the hospital as well as raising funds for vital research.  You can find out more about the work of this worthy charity here.

Every Christmas the hospital is lit up with a host of sparkling snowflake decorations, each sponsored to raise money for the hospital.  Displaying hundreds of snowflakes on the buildings of Sheffield Children’s is a huge task, and a Christmas project we have been involved in for years.

We supply safe work at height for installing the snowflakes using our truck mounted access platforms. Over the years we have donated some of the access equipment required for the install and  many of our team have donated time by volunteering to install the snowflakes, so that more of the money the snowflakes raise can go directly to where it is needed in the hospital.

The Children’s Hospital Charity is our charity of choice, and we have even branded our Ruthmann T510HF powered access platform with their logo.


Corporate Special Recognition award

In 2023 we were absolutely delighted to receive the Corporate Special Recognition award from The Children’s Hospital Charity for our support installing the snowflakes over the years.

“We genuinely could not run the Snowflakes project without you guys, it is incredible what is achieved in such a short space of time and the time the team put into it not only on install weekends but planning beforehand is simply amazing. We could not be more grateful for the support we receive and can’t wait to continue working with you all for many years of successful snowflake seasons!”
