Sheffield United visit Cavendish
On 17th December, players from Sheffield United Football Club visited Cavendish Cancer Care, as we are one of the club’s chosen causes for 2019-2020. The footballers had the opportunity to look around our centre, and met families who had benefited from the service.
So far, the club have supported Cavendish with auction and raffle prizes, one of which was sold for £4,000 at the charity’s Celebration Ball. They have also invited the charity to collect and promote their cause at matches, and auctioned their Promotion Winning Crowd Flag, which has funded Christmas gifts for the charity’s beneficiaries. Ex-England, Sheffield United and Leeds United player, Tony Currie, also hosted a golf day in September in aid of Cavendish Cancer Care and Support Dogs.
“It’s been an incredible privilege to have been chosen as one of Sheffield United’s charities this year,” says CEO Emma Draper. “Working with the club is so rewarding, and giving some of our clients the opportunity to meet the players today was such a pleasure. It’s certainly got us in the Christmas spirit here at Cavendish!”
