Christmas 2018 has been a huge success for Cavendish Cancer Care, and we have YOU – our donors, volunteers and fundraisers – to thank for it. We have raised over £17,500, which covers the costs of full therapy courses at the centre for 46 people.
Here’s a look at just some of the things we got up to in December…
The draw has been made and the winners are in for this year’s Christmas Cracker. Congratulations to all the winners and a huge thank you to everyone who has bought and sold tickets, raising thousands of pounds to support local families affected by cancer.
If you and Mike from accounts figure you spend 40 hours a week together and sending each other a card seems a bit silly, Or as a workplace you’d like to to something a little different rather than send cards we have the thing for you. A Christmas Greetings Poster, which was designed by Ophelia, one of the children who has been supported by our Young People’s Service this year. Instead of exchanging cards with your colleagues, write your Christmas greetings on the poster and make a donation to Cavendish Cancer Care.
This December, we’re hoping to raise enough funds to cover the cost of keeping our doors open for the rest of 2018. We want to give local people the care they deserve, but we can’t do that without your support and generosity.

Join Cavendish Cancer Care for our annual Sheffield Together!
Sheffield Together is a 5km or 10km run, walk or jog through Ecclesall Woods. You set your own pace, so whether you’re a seasoned runner, or it’s your first time doing an event like this, it doesn’t matter. Come wind, rain, or snow, we all get together for a day of fun and fundraising for your local cancer charity. This is a great event to rally together families, societies, work groups, or friends – let’s smash this together.
Cavendish Cancer Care are looking for another caring individual to join our volunteer reception team, on Mondays. Our reception volunteers are absolutely vital to making sure that the Centre continues to be a warm and welcoming place. They help to welcome visitors, including people using our services. This includes some administration at the centre, including filing, updating records and making phone calls.
We are so pleased to have been selected as one of the Co-op’s chosen charities. This means that, for the next year, you can raise money for Cavendish simply by going shopping!
You need to be a Co-op member to join this scheme. It only costs £1 to join and you will earn that back, and much more, in rewards after a few visits.
