Thanks to everyone who has supported our staff with their charity fundraising over the past year – this week we have been able to present Sheffield Children’s Hospital with a cheque for £1,185. This brings the total donated to Sheffield Childrens Hospital over the last year to £1,917!
Along with these events we have also held separate fundraising activities to raise money for Ashgate Hospicecare, Helen’s Trust, Poppy Appeal, Comic Relief and Jeans for Genes. A number of staff also took part in the Ashgate Hospicecare Sparkle Walk raising an incredible £1,396.50.
This brings our fundraising total for 2019/20 to £3,872.40!
Every year our staff choose a charity to support and this year staff voted to fundraise for Mind – for better mental health.
