Cavendish Announces New Partnership with The Sheffield Sharks, Sheffield Hatters and Canon Medical Arena
October 10, 2023
Cavendish Cancer Care is delighted to be announced as the first ever official charity partner for The Sheffield Sharks, The Sheffield Hatters and the newly built Canon Medical Arena, which will be the state-of-the-art new home for both teams.
Throughout the partnership, Cavendish will work alongside both teams to develop fundraising opportunities, raise awareness of the work of the charity and offer wellbeing training to local communities.
Sheffield Sharks are one of the most decorated teams in British Basketball League history and play at the top level of basketball in the UK, whilst women’s team The Sheffield Hatters are the most successful women’s team in the UK and pioneers of women’s basketball.
Autumn 2023 sees the teams move into their long-awaited, purpose-built home at the Canon Medical Arena – the UK’s first carbon-neutral built arena – which is housed at the Olympic Legacy Park in the Attercliffe area of Sheffield. Alongside multi-sports courts, the new arena offers a unique Medical and Diagnostic Clinic, operated by healthcare provider LivingCare, offering a range of medical and scanning services to the local sports community, NHS patients and elite athletes.
Emma Draper, CEO of Cavendish Cancer Care, said; “We’re absolutely thrilled to partner with The Sharks and The Hatters, and we are especially excited to be involved in the new arena. It’s a great time for us to get on board, as we continue to develop innovative ways to support local cancer patients and their families and we’re looking forward to seeing what opportunities will develop from partnering with world class facilities.”
