MOJO MD Martin Greenhow said: “What a fantastic way to announce our arrival into Sheffield. I’m so proud of all our staff and guests who have supported us and helped us to raise over £7,000 for PACT – it’s a great cause and I’m delighted that we could use our launch night to support a local cause. We look forward to welcoming guests to our new Sheffield bar for the famous MOJO experience.”

With hundreds in attendance and more than 600 cocktails sold Sheffield’s newest hotspot was put firmly on the map.

Set over two floors, in the former NUM building, the group’s new Sheffield bar has a first-floor terrace, shuffleboard, beer pong and live sports.

For one night only, the group celebrated its arrival in Sheffield raising a total of £7,040 with their conscious bar, allowing guests to pay as they felt, with a live tracker keeping tally of the total on the night.

Sarah Harrison, Assistant Support Co-Ordinator at PACT added: “We can't begin to tell you how amazed we are that MOJO chose us to be their chosen charity. We are a really small charity that do whatever we can to try and make the journey easier for our families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer. Each day we provide the inpatient families with breakfast and lunch and £7,040 would help us feed our families for 10 months!”
