Businesses across the City Region are being urged to take up the challenge of supporting two of South Yorkshire’s best loved charities.

Master Cutler Craig McKay is aiming to see more businesses than ever take up the challenge of raising money for his chosen organisations, St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield and Rotherham Hospice.

Participants are given £50 and the challenge is to use entrepreneurial skills and teamwork to make as much money as possible.

“Not only is the Master Cutler’s Challenge a landmark annual event for many local businesses but in 2016 it supports two charities very dear to us all,” said Mr McKay, the CEO of Sheffield engineering firm Evenort Ltd.

“The impact of the work done by St Luke’s and Rotherham Hospice touches so many and one day it might even mean something to us all very personally.

“We all have a stake in the wellbeing of these charities and I can think of no better way to invest in that than to take part in this year’s Master Cutler’s Challenge.

“For me the challenge is about more than raising funds – there’s so much to gain from taking part as individuals, as businesses and as a business community too.

“Besides, it shows the world what we’re made of here – grit, dedication and good humour!”

Money raised will support the hospices’ community teams.

An official challenge launch will be held at the Cutler’s Hall on February 4 but companies can start now.
