In support of Sheffield Children’s Hospital Webhelp are sponsoring our very own bear in this summer’s Bears of Sheffield sculpture trail. With so many restrictions over the past year, it’s a pleasure to be part of this art exhibition to unite the city.


We are proud to be sponsors of the Bears of Sheffield for 2021 coordinated by The Children’s Hospital Charity. With less than 3 weeks to go until the hunt begins, we can bearly contain our excitement.

Between 12 July and 29 September, 60 big bears will be showcased around Sheffield, including our very own Pastel Patchwork Pattern Bear designed by Fun Makes Good, a Scottish design studio founded by textile designer Eleanor Young. The bear is a continuation of some of Fun Makes Good’s previous work, having collaborated with Artfelt to create bespoke textiles and interior decorations for various spaces within Sheffield Children’s Hospital. There will also be 100 little bears in the trail designed by local schools, and painted by professional artists.

The bears will raise funds to transform the Cancer and Leukaemia ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. Patients going through treatment will often stay in the hospital for weeks, so the vison is to have rooms with space, privacy and natural light.

Our Webhelpers across three Yorkshire sites are busy planning activities to generate funds for this amazing cause. The countdown is on until the bears come out to play, and we can’t wait to find them all!

“Sheffield Children’s hospital is a fantastic cause that is very close to many of our colleagues’ hearts across our Yorkshire sites, and one that we have been proud to support through various events with The Children’s Hospital Charity over the years. I am thrilled to be part of the ‘Bears of Sheffield’ event, and can’t wait to see them out and about in Sheffield!”
