HEART-throb Sean Bean injected some Hollywood glamour into a Sheffield hospital by launching an appeal to improve facilities for patients with leukaemia and blood disorders.
The film star planted a tree in the grounds of the Royal Hallamshire Hospital watched by a crowd of admirers, including staff and patients.

Sean was happy to launch the £150,000 Sheffield Leukaemia and Blood Disorders Appeal, as he was aware of the specialist care that patients get in the city's hospitals.

His own dad, Brian Bean, from Handsworth, has been receiving treatment for lymphoma - a form of cancer that affects the immune system - and is doing well and feeling fit. They are both full of praise for the care he's received at the Northern General.

Sean said: "It's all good. It helps you see the positive work that is being done in the hospital and to identify with the patients."

As he planted a tree as a symbol of the appeal, watched by around 100 people in the rain, he said: "I am very honoured to be here today. "Leukaemia and blood disorders don't get the high profile and recognition they deserve. The appeal will help the hundreds of patients who are treated on the wards."

The A-list film star happily signed autographs and chatted to fans before taking an unscheduled trip on the wards to meet patients and more staff.


He also admitted that his hugely successful career has even taken him by surprise and still loves coming home to Sheffield. "When I started out I wanted to be a stage actor and everything else has been a bonus," said Sean.

He is willing to lend his name to help Sheffield Hospitals Charitable Trust in its drive to raise £150,000 to fully equip new leukaemia wards and day rooms, to make them more comfortable for patients staying within the hospital.

The plan is to give patients, who need to spend time weeks or months in isolation during treatment, access to facilities such as the internet to keep them in touch with the outside world - plus TVs and DVDs to provide entertainment.

Sean's dad Brian said he feels great after having his treatment and cannot praise the caring staff at the city's hospitals too highly.

HEART-THROB actor Sean Bean injected some Hollywood glamour to a Sheffield hospital by launching an appeal to improve facilities for patients with leukaemia and blood disorders.
The Lord of the Rings star and Sheffield United fanatic, from Handsworth, planted a tree in the grounds of the Royal Hallamshire Hospital watched by a crowd of admirers, including staff and patients.

Sean was happy to launch the £150,000 Sheffield Leukaemia and Blood Disorders Appeal as he was aware of the specialist care patients get in the city's hospitals because his dad Brian has been receiving treatment for lymphoma - a form of cancer that affects the immune system - and is doing well. They are both full of praise for the care he's received at the city's other adult hospital, the Northern General.


Sheffield Hospitals Charitable Trust aims to raise £150,000 to fully equip new leukaemia wards and day rooms to make them more homely for patients staying within the hospital.
Sean was also due to receive an honorary doctorate at Sheffield University today.

Star to launch hospital appeal

HOLLYWOOD star Sean Bean is returning to his home city to show his support for a new hospital appeal.
The actor and Sheffield United fan will launch the Royal Hallamshire Hospital's Sheffield Leukaemia and Blood Disorders Appeal with a tree-planting ceremony on Friday.

It is hoped the appeal will raise £150,000 for equipment at new leukaemia wards and day rooms at the hospital in Glossop Road.

Behind the appeal is the Sheffield Hospitals Charitable Trust, whose head of fundraising Emma Dickens said: "We are over the moon to have Sean Bean's support for this very important new fundraising appeal. It will bring huge improvements to the care and treatment of patients, from across South Yorkshire and beyond."

The tree will be used to display messages telling the community how much money has been raised so far. It will also provide information about up-coming events.

The appeal aims to equip proposed new wards for leukaemia and other blood disorder patients at the hospital and improve the environment and quality of life for patients who can remain on the ward for long periods.
