WARD CNC REMEMBERS 'LIZZIE WARD' & SUPPORTS 'SHEFFIELD CHILDREN HOSPITAL' HERD OF SHEFFIELD APPEAL

The famous Wards elephant, the legendary Lizzie, purchased from a visiting circus, replaced horses conscripted by the military to serve in Europe in 1916. She transported machinery, etc., around Sheffield until she retired. T W Ward is still regularly asked about this fascinating story of Lizzie.

When more orthodox means of transport were requisitioned during the First World War, Lizzie the elephant became a well·known Ward employee in Sheffield.

Inspired by 'Lizzie' The Sheffield Children's Hospital has launched this week the Herd of Sheffield charity appeal, which Ward CNC are proud sponsors of.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is one of just four stand-alone children’s hospitals in the UK, and the only one in Yorkshire.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of children come from all over the UK and abroad for specialist treatment at our hospital. Thanks to our pioneering clinicians, we are forging the way in paediatric care and are recognised as a centre of excellence in fields ranging from asthma and cystic fibrosis to cancer, gastroenterology and major trauma.

The Children’s Hospital Charity makes this extraordinary hospital even better, funding enhancements that are above and beyond the NHS provision. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the charity can fund life-saving medical equipment, research into the prevention and cure of childhood illnesses and improvements to the environment.
