Children's Hospital charity appeal launch

Plans have been unveiled for a forty million pound revamp of Sheffield's Children's Hospital. Half of the money needed to pay for the work will be raised through a new charity campaign 'Make it Better' - which was launched today.

The hospital says thousands of children and parents from across the region will benefit from 48 new private bedrooms, a new outpatient department and better equipment. Work is due to start in Spring next year.
