Armed forces cadets asked shoppers to spare change to help current and former service personnel who have fallen on hard times.
Members of Sheffield’s Manor Top and Hillsborough Army Cadet Force detachments headed to Orchard Square in the city centre armed with collection buckets.
Money raised has been given to SSAFA, a charity which supports hundreds of people across South Yorkshire each year.
Colonel Richard Elliott, of SSAFA’s Sheffield office, called in at Orchard Square to meet the cadets and thank them for their efforts.
The amount of money raised by both cadet units has not yet been revealed.
