Art for All - Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill

Art for All - Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill

From 22nd July you’ll be able to view our free “Art for All” exhibition in the central atrium with over 60 canvasses created by a range of amazing participants - including this one created by Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill!

Each of the canvasses will be up for grabs via an online raffle, with money raised going to the Bright Young Dreams campaign in support of The Children’s Hospital Charity. 

Born & raised in Sheffield, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill is not only one of Great Britain's most successful athletes, she has been a patron of the charity since 2006. Jessica is also the founder of the Bright Young Dreams campaign. 

"Mental Health in children is at breaking point across the world. As a Mum it breaks my heart. We can do so much more, and we need to! 

I want to create a legacy that can define a future pathway for better care for the children of tomorrow. Sheffield is my hometown, and Sheffield Children's is at the forefront of pediatric care in the Uk, and beyond - and they have big ambitions to make a difference across the world.

I've seen first hand the work that is being done, but more funding is needed to help more children, and more research is needed that must be shared with the world. 

Mental Health & Wellbeing underpins everything, and it is an area that needs much needed attention, funding and clinical support."
