A cheque of £60,000 was donated on Monday to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital by mattress and bedding company, Sleepeezee, following successful sales of their Jessica range this year. The cheque was presented at the children’s hospital in Sheffield by Sleepeezee’s Managing Director Steve Warren, and brand ambassador, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill.
The Jessica range, named after the brand ambassador, is perfect for those with an active lifestyle. With each mattress sold, Sleepeezee donated £20 to the children’s hospital. The money donated helps to provide the best equipment money can buy, opening new facilities and funding vital research to change young people’s lives.
As a charity close to Jessica’s heart, the London 2012 Olympic champion stated ‘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 said, ‘We are so grateful for this incredible donation from Sleepeezee from the sales of their Jessica mattresses. The donation will go towards helping to build a Helipad on the roof at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. 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 into 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.’

The staff and team at Sheffield Children’s Hospital are incredible and Sleepeezee is proud to gift their donation this year. ‘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’ stated Steve Warren, Managing Director.
