Friends leave a heartwarming message in the snow for hospital patients
Patients at a Sheffield hospital were delighted to receive a giant ‘get well soon’ message etched in snow.
Wintry weather in South Yorkshire may have caused travel chaos for some, but for those in Royal Hallamshire, the inclement weather brought a message of hope.
A “group of lads” are believed to be behind the friendly gesture, but have yet to come forward despite the widespread praise online.
Her message was left in a parking lot opposite the hospital on Thursday.
“Really good job thanks to those who did it,” tweeted Paul Harris, 44, of Kidsgrove, Staffordshire.
Mr Harris, who has pulmonary arterial hypertension and raises money for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association UK, told the PA news agency he visits Sheffield hospital about every six months for a check-up.
He was on the 13th floor when he spotted the message in the snow on Thursday.
“It was decent!” he said.
“I don’t know how many rooms have that view, but it’s the main profile of the hospital, so there must have been at least 100 windows to easily see it from.”
“The number of people who would have seen it is immense. So yes, it was good!’
Sheffield was one of several places in Britain hit by the cold and snow.
The Met Office had issued three yellow alerts for northern England, the Midlands, North Wales and Northern Ireland, where “significant disruptions” to transport and electricity were expected.
Twitter user Joe Dawson was another to spot the news to the hospital, tweeting: “To the guys who did this in the Hallamshire car park you really cheered everyone up @NCCU-K1! Legends!’
