Supertram Citylink launch with Sheffield childrens hospital charity

29 Sep 2017

On Thursday 14 and Sunday 17 September, Supertram ran special services to raise money for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity.

Thursday was the first time our new Citylink vehicles, which will be used on the tram train service to Rotherham and Parkgate when it is launched next year, carried members of the public.

Instead of paying a tram fare, our customers were asked to donate what they felt appropriate while on board a brand new Citylink vehicle, which was the first of our vehicles ever to be named.

The tram has been called Theo after the Sheffield children's hospital charity's mascot. With your support, we raised a fantastic £1,154 for the charity!

A huge thank you to everyone who boarded the tram and donated, there were even a few people who put money into the buckets at tram stops and didn’t even get on!

The money raised from this event will help the charity transform the lives of young patients who travel from all over the world for treatment at Sheffield Children's Hospital. World-class care with world-class equipment and facilities will benefit children for generations to come.
