I recently joined the Cavendish team as a volunteer. They are a great charity that give so much to so many people, and so I wanted to help them in any way I could. In that spirit (and with a little persuasion from the fundraising team) I decided that with 2 training runs under my belt, and only a week to go until the event – I would run the Sheffield 10k.
News & events
Back in July, we were chosen as the charity beer for Abbeydale breweries ‘Sunfest’ festival. Over the weekend we were very grateful to also partner with Seven Hills WI, who produced a whole range of savoury and sweet treats. From pork pies to carrot cake they managed to flog them all and raise an extra £300 pounds for Cavendish! It’s fantastic the support that we get from local business, and makes all the difference. Keep it coming!
We hosted our annual Cavendish Cancer Care Ladies Lunch at Baldwins Omega on Friday 29th September. Ladies from across South Yorkshire joined together to enjoy a wonderful lunch in aid of charity. This year we are pleased to announce that the event rose over £3500 which means we are able to support over 10 people with a course of therapy.
We were once again joined by the fabulous Izzi of Baslow who showcased all the current collections along with a number of different stalls for the ladies to browse before enjoying their meals.
On Sunday 24th September the Sheffield 10k descended upon our Sheffield street streets and the Cavendish supporters came out in force! We’d like to send out a massive thank you and congratulations to all our runners, marshals and cheering supporters.
With the Cav team out from the early hours in Tudor square, and the runners gathered (helped along with a selection of cakes from big Dave) everyone was raring to go. We had some fantastic times, and even more fantastic fundraising efforts, and all in all it was a great day.
Are you looking for a new opportunity to join our well-established Children and Young People’s Team?
This is an exciting and challenging opportunity which involves working with children, young people and their families. Previous experience of therapeutic work with young children on a one to one basis and with families is essential.
Fancy a festive tipple in aid of Cavendish Cancer Care?
On Thursday 14th December, join us for our Wines in Wonderland fundraiser hosted by Mitchells Wines at Edisons Cafe at 7pm. You can enjoy an arrival drink along with 5 different wines that the team will talk you through throughout the evening…what more could you want?!
Tickets are £20 per person from Eventbrite or ring Fundraising on 0114 275 4070 or email email@example.com
Do you think you would be able to complete 4 Marathons in the space of 12 months?
Chris Billinghurst is doing just that! Running in memory of Kris Travis, who sadly passed away last year, Chris has already completed the Dorchester and Little Down Marathons, with the Bournemouth and Brighton Marathons still to come.
The money he is raising is going towards the Cavendish Cancer Centre, which supported Kris and his family.
We would like to say a big thank you to David and Yvonne Kee who donated £200 from David’s 70th Birthday party to Cavendish Cancer Care. Yvonne says “We were welcomed when we first came and that has remained consistent. “
With the Urban Challenge being a little over a month ago, we would like to reflect on one particular team who took part on the event – the Wilson Field Group.
The four team members supported each other throughout the 4 stages of the challenge, most imp ortantly when completing the 120ft abseil down the side of the Sheffield Hallam Owen Building. With the support of their family, friends and co-workers, they were able to raise a large sum of money through sponsorship and donations.
UPDATE: Unfortunately the the organisers of Endurer Events are no longer able to go ahead with the event and have cancelled both the 23rd and 24th September dates. We’d like to apologise to anyone who was supporting us and is disappointed at missing out. If you would like to take part in another challenge event please get in touch.
