Alice and friends raise £4,300 for hospice care

DEDICATED St Luke’s Hospice supporter Alice Ford and her friends raised more than £4,000 when she organised a special family fun day.

Held at the Jubilee Sports Club in Claywheels Lane at Wadsley Bridge, the day’s activities kicked off with a football match between supporters of Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.

There was also a pizza oven, homemade cakes, face painting, a bouncy castle, bar, music and raffle – raising a final total of £4,300.

“This was an incredible fundraising effort and we are extremely proud of Alice and her friends,” said St Luke’s Community Fundraising Manager Megan Senior.

“To have raised so much with just one event is a phenomenal achievement and one that will make a massive difference to the lives of St Luke’s patients and their families.”
