Staff and customers at two Sheffield firms joined forces to complete a series of challenges to raise money for two South Yorkshire hospices.

Parking management services firm Bank Park and outdoors equipment store Decathlon raised £880.35 for St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield and Rotherham Hospice through their ‘tryathlon’ challenge.

The three day event saw visitors and staff make a donation before taking part in one of three challenges - the pop up tent challenge, the turbo trainer challenge and the chin up challenge.

The challenge was based at the Decathlon store in Eyre Street.

Joasia Lesniak, St Luke’s corporate fundraising manager, praised everyone who took part for supporting a worth charity.

She added: “Bank Park and Decathlon are both long term supporters of St Luke’s and raised an outstanding amount with their joint event. “Making the weekend even more special, Decathlon also kindly donated some fantastic prizes to encourage people’s support.”

The event was part of the Master Cutler’s Challenge, in which businesses receive a £50 investment and are tasked with turning it into as much fundraising for charity as possible.
