This is Lynn. She used to work at Cavendish as Head of Therapy until her retirement but Cavendish is always close to her heart. Lynn has just completed a year long challenge walking 25 miles every month for our 25th anniversary year. That’s a whopping 300 miles or the equivalent of walking to Cardiff and back! She has raised a superb £987.
We are delighted that Chris Heaton has taken on the challenge of running in our precious London Marathon place, his friends and family thought his running days had ceased but we’ve managed to drag him out of retirement for one last trot.
Chris has a busy schedule and this weekend is no different and he has a black tie event the night before the marathon so has just decided to push through the night and run the marathon in his dinner jacket. He is doing a fantastic job fundraising for us, so much so that we will are going to foot his dry cleaning bill.
The University of Sheffield Students’ Union Theatre Company are back this February with their popular charity 24 hour West End musical.
