Charity Fundraisers

So far this year...

10 of our club members ran the Sheffield Half marathon raising £1383 for Teenage Cancer Trust and Cardiac Risk in the Young over the Easter holidays.

For Breast Cancer Awareness month we wore pink to our training sessions raising £63 for Coppafeel! who help to ensure breast cancer is diagnosed early and correctly.

In October over 70 club members ran the Sheffield TenTenTen for Teenage Cancer Trust raising £3355.

We donated over 100 tins and non-perishable food items to the Harvest Appeal for the Cathedral Archer Project.

In December the women's club hosted team meals raising £123.20 for the local charity Roundabout that supports young people facing homelessness in Sheffield.

In February we hosted a whole club pub quiz raising £200 for Hockey for Heroes, who use hockey to raise funds for Help for Heroes, a charity which helps injured veterans and service personnel and supports them in rehabilitation.

For Movember - which tackles prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention - the men's club all attempted to grow the best moustache while the women's club bet on who they wanted to win, raising £306

In March 12 members of the men's club agreed to have their heads shaved by the highest bidder raising £1396 for Teenage Cancer Trust.

We currently have over 30 club members signed up to the Blood donation drive at the centre in Sheffield.

During lockdown the we ran/walked the distance of 1234 miles from Sheffield to Croatia (where our TOUR was due to take place), men vs women. We raised £2365 for the Cathedral Archer Project and Sheffield Women's Aid, which are two local Sheffield charities tackling homelessness and domestic abuse.
