Sheffield Hallam Staff raise £37,000 for Cavendish

Inspired by the work Cavendish Cancer Care does in supporting local families affected by cancer, nearly 600 members of staff from the Sheffield Hallam University Facilities Directorate have come together to raise £37,000.

One of the families supported by Cavendish is that of FD staff member Julie Hibbins – aged 60 and from Longley, Sheffield. Julie, a Senior Domestic at the University, accessed Cavendish four years ago after successfully undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Once discharged after getting the ‘all clear’, Julie contacted Cavendish to address the emotional trauma caused by her cancer ordeal. She talked frankly to a counsellor about her recent experience with cancer which provided her with the emotional release that she needed. “Cancer changes your life. You’re clear, physically, but there is no consideration of the emotional impact of going through the treatment. If Cavendish wasn’t there, then I would have gone into depression. It changed my life,” said Julie.
