St Lukes and Weston Park Hospital benefit from fundraising success

Mum’s the word for the Sheffield charity supporters who have raised almost £100,000 for some of the city’s favourite organisations.

 

Sheffield Mums Against Cancer is the group headed by Ceri Rogers and friends which raises cash for charities including St Luke’s Hospice and Weston Park Hospital.

 

Their Big Sparkly Fundraiser at Baldwin’s Omega raised almost £20,000 in one glamorous night that included an auction where items up for grabs included signed Antony Joshua boxing gloves and shorts and a Liam Gallagher solo album and signed print.

 

The event means that the group has now raised more than £97,000 for charities in just five years.

 

“This is a truly extraordinary achievement,” said St Luke’s community fundraising manager Megan Senior.

 

“Ceri and her tireless group of friends are an outstanding example of fundraising at its finest and the work they do really does make an enormous difference to the lives of so many Sheffield people.”
