Urban Challenge – Longest Day Savings

To celebrate the longest day we are offering a special discount to anyone who signs up to the urban challenge TODAY.

You don’t have to be an athlete to get involved. Urban Challenge is a one-of-a-kind competition that anyone with a reasonable fitness level – and a bit of nerve – can complete.

Congratulations to Hallamshire RUFC

Everyone at Cavendish Cancer Care were delighted when Hallamshire RUFC adopted us as their charity of the season raising more than £1000 from their annual charity match. Their support has continued throughout the season with our logo featuring on the teams shirts and shorts. To top off a great season for the team they have won the South Yorkshire Vase.

Congratulations from everyone at Cavendish, thanks so much for your support

Taking place on Thursday 25th May, Humble Williams and Oh Papa are playing at the Olive lounge in aid of Cavendish Cancer Care. The Olive Lounge in Wickersley, Rotherham host Acoustic Thursdays weekly and have let us host this evening in a one off opportunity.

Humble Williams is a singer songwriter who graced the stage back in April at the Greystones during our Chris Helme and Guests gig. His performance was extremely popular so we’ve asked him back to get involved again. Born and raised in Sheffield, Yorkshire but borrowing influences from further afield, Humble’s mission is simply to write great songs. In his world ‘the Song is King’, and as such his writing manifests itself in many guises – ranging from country and Americana to folk, soul and blues. It’s safe to say we’re looking forward to hearing him once again!

Cavendish Cancer Buddies

Cavendish Cancer Buddies are a group of volunteers who have either had cancer themselves or have cared for someone with cancer. Because they have “been there” they can listen to the things that people can’t always say to their family and friends, and won’t judge what you say.

Sweet Charity- The Smarties Challenge!

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

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.
