Charity event hits it to the Back of the Net for hospice

Have your say

ST Luke’s Hospice was the real winner when Sheffield’s Claremont Hospital held its first Back of the Net football tournament.

Three Claremont teams joined a St Luke’s team for the event, which was organised by Claremont’s Anna Rodman and Matt Bell and hosted by Hallam FC at Crosspool.

The event, which also featured a raffle and a Guess the Score competition, raised more than £1,500 for the Sheffield hospice.

Claremont Finance Administrator and event organiser Matt Bell said: “It was worth all the hard work to organise the event and I’m so pleased with how much we raised for St Luke’s. “

St Luke’s Corporate Fundraising Manager Joasia Lesniak said: “This was a great way to spend an afternoon for a fantastic cause.”
