CHARITY INFORMATION

In 2006, Help a Hallam Child (the official charity of radio stations, Hallam FM and Magic AM), launched a special project ‘Read to Succeed’ to tackle the problem of children not learning to read properly whilst at school.  Over the next two years, the project aims to employ over 50 teaching assistants to help with this problem with the Field of Dreams grant of £2,360 going towards the cost of employing one teaching assistant helping pupils aged 6 and 7 years with literacy problems.

Whirlow Hall Farm Trust, a unique environmental and educational charity, received £1,836 in 2005 which was used to extend access ramps for disabled users. David Heugh, Chief Executive of Whirlow Farm Trust thanked Football Aid and Field of Dreams for the donation,  “We have 10,000 visitors 4-12 yrs each year and over 2000 are special need/ wheelchair users. The ramp made access much easier.  We laid concrete and pathways to one of the main charity areas - prior to this the terrain made it very difficult for wheelchair users and smaller children. It has been excellent. The area is now fully accessible and all visitors now use this area."

In addition, Marie Curie Cancer Care received £336 towards the cost of daffodil bulbs to establish a Field of Hope in Hillsborough Park and the Sheffield Children’s Hospital were delighted with their donation from Field of Dreams to the Children’s Hospital Charity.

Finally, as a result of the 2002 Football Aid games at Sheffield Wednesday, Hillsborough Community Development Trust were awarded £1,750. This was used to upgrade the Hillsborough Walled Garden, a community and memorial garden commemorating the Hillsborough Disaster of 1989.  


January 2010 Update - The £2,000 club nominated proceeds from the 2009 match went to The Children’s Hospital Charity, which exists to support and enhance the services of Sheffield Children's NHS Trust and it's reputation as a centre of excellence for the research, prevention, care and cure of childhood illnesses.

“We are extremely grateful to Football Aid and Field of Dreams for this generous donation to our CT scanner appeal. It is a fantastic that our partnership with Sheffield Wednesday FC continues to go from strength to strength and we thank them for nominating us to benefit from this money."
