  • Cash boost from South Yorkshire Police

    April 28, 2015

    women in policeWe have received a welcome boost from South Yorkshire Police’s Women’s Network.Members organised a charity dinner to celebrate International Women’s Day and raise funds for Cavendish Cancer Care at the same time.
    The event drummed up £1,516 through ticket sales, a raffle and signed Chelsea football shirt and Temporary Chief Inspector Rebecca Chapman was delighted to handover the cheque.She said: “We had a fantastic evening at Niagara Sports and Social Club with more than 80 people coming together to celebrate women’s achievements across the world.”The network is part of a national organisation that promotes equality, hosts regular developmental events and provides training and coaching for female colleagues.T/Chief Insp Chapman added: “Every year we support a different charity and this year we voted in favour of the Cavendish Care Centre as it is somewhere that our money could make a real impact.“The centre supports people when they need it, providing counselling and therapies which could be anything from massages and reiki to hypnotherapy and reflexology.“It’s close to my heart because the centre supported my sister while she was undergoing chemotherapy and surgery in 2012 following a diagnosis of breast cancer.”Chris Farrell, chief executive of Cavendish Cancer Care, said: “This money means that we can keep supporting local families affected by cancer.

    “We rely solely on the generosity of local people to continue our work and this donation is vital to do that.

    “It costs us around £350 to support a person affected by cancer and we are so grateful for every penny received.”
