Sweet Charity- The Smarties Challenge!

Sweet Charity

As one of the chosen charities for the Mistress Cutler Challenge, we at challenging you to get involved with the Sweet Charity.

It’s really simple, all you have to do is is enjoy a tube of Smartie’s, and then fill it back up with 20p pieces (or even £1 coins!). A full tube of 20ps equals over £12, meaning with 8 full tubes, we can keep a therapy room open for 1 month.

Shaney’s sponsored haircut

Shaney Otter (1)

This is Shaney Otter, she decided that she wanted to find a way to raise funds to support our work especially our Children and Young People’s Service. She had also heard about a charity called The Little Princess Trust who take hair to make wigs for children who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Shaney decided she wanted to support both charities, raising money for Cavendish with a sponsored hair cut and donating the hair afterwards.

Thanks to Wosskow Brown

WB - CCC Cheque Pres

South Yorkshire based solicitors Wosskow Brown have raised £2,240 for Sheffield based Cavendish Cancer Care.

Wosskow Brown raised this amount of money through many different ways; including: a firework display at Wentworth Woodhouse, a Charity Sports Quiz Night at Genting Casino and even two ‘Free Will Months’, in which Wosskow Brown provided a basic Will at a donation price where all proceeds went towards the charity.

All at Cavendish Cancer Care were delighted when as part of our ongoing partnership with the Sheffield Hallam University Facilities Department we were introduced to Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Enterprise through their foundation donate regularly to charities around the globe and we were lucky enough to receive £1000.

The Foundation was established by Enterprise founder, Jack C. Taylor, to give back to the communities in which their customers and employees live and work. The Foundation provides charitable support to worthwhile, nonprofit initiatives that are actively supported by the company’s employees, and loyal customers in the thousands of local communities where they operate.`

Chris Helme

Chris Helme, who first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses’ released his debut solo album in more recent years. He is rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics Love Is The Law and Blinded By The Sun – songs that evoked everything the 90’s stood for.

In a show in aid of Cavendish Cancer Care, a local charity, we see Helme perform alongside guests in an evening of entertainment. Guests will include Cavendish Cancer Care favorites local band Murder and the Seaside.
