Sports and Badminton Club raises cash for St Luke’s

MEMBERS of Shiregreen Sports and Badminton Club have almost doubled their fundraising in a second year of support for St Luke’s Hospice.

The group raised £300 in their first year of raising cash for Sheffield’s only hospice but have already raised £580 in 2018.

They are raising money in memory of Jane Bilton who was a member of the club and a St Luke’s patient.

Her son Josh now regularly attends the club and was keen to get the badminton club to raise money for the hospice.

Among their fundraising initiatives have been a charity week where members raised £411 with ‘pay what you want’ donations for sessions.

And club chairman Adam Hague also raised £170 through a series of personal challenges.

“This has been a great two years of support for St Luke’s,” said St Luke’s Community Fundraising Assistant Zoe Manders.

“Every penny they raised really does make a great difference to the lives of all our patients and their families.”
