COME on join the club.

Members of the Benchmark Recruit team like nothing more than swapping the office for an escape to the countryside.

And now they’ve become members of the 480 Club - the business organisation which supports the city’s Whirlow Hall Farm.

Now other Sheffield firms are being urged to join them.

Whirlow Hall Farm Trust works with inner city children and young people with special needs or disabilities. The cost of an overnight stay for a class is £480 and the 480 Club was launched to persuade businesses like Benchmark to fund visits for children who might otherwise never experience country life.

Benchmark director Louisa Harrison Walker said: “It costs companies just £480 a year to take part and I think that’s fantastic value.”
