If the thought of running is a bit too much we are need volunteer marshalls for the day too.

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.

A great prize from Enterprise.

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.

Lynn’s Miles

Lynn Seymour 1

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.

Chris dons his DJ to run for Cavendish

Chris Heaton 2

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.
