NHS charity launches survey to shape play area redevelopment

childrne's ward play area

Thanks to a bumper month of festive fundraising the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity is one step closer to refurbishing the Children’s Ward play area - now we need your help to shape how it looks.

In December 2021, the charity challenged the public and colleagues at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust to take part in a Christmas Grotto, a Virtual Santa Jog and Christmas Jumper Day. Fundraisers pulled out all the stops and the charity’s Christmas appeal raised £6,486.23.

The charity is now looking for youngsters (and grown-ups) from across Rotherham to tell us how they think the money could be spent on revamping the rooftop play area at Rotherham Hospital by filling in a short survey.

Suzanne Rutter, Charity Engagement and Development Manager, said: “We are thrilled that our Christmas appeal inspired people to get involved in fundraising for their local NHS charity. Whether you bought our official charity Christmas cards, took part in the Santa Jog or wore your super sweater, every penny has brought us closer to creating a play area we can really be proud of.

“We want to transform the rooftop space into a fun, relaxing and creative area for children of all ages. We can’t wait to get people, young and old, involved in designing it. Whether you’d love to see a woodland, jungle or pirate theme, traditional games or something unique, wall murals or a reading and games den – please tell us what you think.”

The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and can be accessed via Google Forms -

The closing date for all your ideas is Friday 11 February 2022.
