Steel City Derby Challenge

Sunday 24th September sees the return of the Steel City Derby which coincides with the popular Asda Foundation Sheffield 10K from Janes Tomlinson’s Run for All.

As a partner charity Cavendish Cancer Care has access to places in the run and we have decided to combine to two big events into one challenge. Whether Red or Blue we want you to show your colours on the day by supporting Team Cav.

Working with NCS

This year, Cavendish Cancer Care are proud to be working with the National Citizen Service here in Sheffield. The NCS is a not for profit social enterprise, backed by the UK Government to provide 15-17 year olds with the opportunities to take on different challenges and build their skills for work and personal life.

Working with local providers, such as Sheffield Wednesday, we are very excited to work with the NCS groups to see what they come up with and are looking forward to the upcoming weeks when they will be completing the ‘Make Your Mark’ phase of the program.

Glee Bah Gum

We would like to say a big thank you to all those involved in Glee Bah Gum community glee club, who performed together to raise money for Cavendish Cancer Care.

Their efforts managed to raise a huge £415.24! The money raised will go directly towards providing support for local families affected by cancer.

Looking Back on the Urban Challenge

Our first ever Urban Challenge took place on Sunday 9th July, with sunny weather and participants eager to take on the challenge, it was set to be a day to remember.

With the event running throughout the day, and a competition set to see who could complete the 1km spin section the quickest, there was lots of competition between each group. We were lucky enough to have participants from Wilson Field, Sheffield Hallam’s own Michael Cambell and Master and Mistress Cutler taking part, all valiantly completing the abseil.
