  • Virtual Bucket Collection at SUFC

    March 31, 2020

    Update: A huge thank you to all of our virtual bucket shakers and everyone who donated for raising more than £600 to provide vital therapy and support for local families affected by cancer.  Your generosity will help ensure no one has to face cancer alone at this especially difficult time.  Thank you!

    Will you be a virtual shaker?

    Cavendish Cancer Care are looking for virtual bucket collectors this weekend. It’s really easy to get involved and you can even do it from your sofa. Simply copy the text below to your social media and share with a donate button to their page, or share our JustGiving campaign.  The message reads;

    “I’m virtual bucket collecting for Cavendish Cancer Care. On Saturday the 4th April, Cavendish would have been bucket collecting at Sheffield United’s home game against Tottenham Hotspur. Due to Covid-19, this can’t happen. Please like, share and comment on my post but most importantly, click the donate button. Just £27 funds an hour of therapy for someone who needs us now more than ever.”

    Sadly, in response to the latest government advice around public gatherings, a large number of events have been cancelled or postponed. The charity are facing thousands of pounds of fundraising income lost in the immediate future due to Covid-19, including from the Sheffield Half Marathon and Bramall Lane Bucket Collection.

    As a charity partner of Sheffield United Football Club, we were due to be shaking their buckets at the game on Saturday 4th April, against Tottenham Hotspurs. After a successful collection in September where we raised over £2600, we are asking for your help to embrace their Virtual Bucket Collection.

    CEO, Emma Draper, says “We are all experiencing strange and uncertain times at the moment. Cavendish Cancer Care, are absolutely determined to keep helping families through the effects of a cancer diagnosis. No one should face cancer alone, and it is even more important that we stick together and keep supporting those who need them.”
