Collection tops £6,000

Have your say

A COLLECTION taken at this year’s Music in the Gaedens event raised more than £6,000 for charity - and there’s much more to come.

The rotary organised event at Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens raised money for Shelterbox, Help for Heroes, Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity and The Children’s Hospital Charity. Roger Hart, President of the Music in the Gardens Committee, said; “It just shows how truly generous the Sheffield community is and I am sure the final figures will reflect that kindness. The Rotary Clubs of Sheffield hope that everybody enjoyed themselves and we would like to thank those that came along, took part, and donated the all important cash.”

The final total donated to the charities will be considerably higher than £6,112 as money is also raised through ticket sales and advertising, but with an overall attendance of more than 10,000 over the four nights, organisers will be counting the proceeds for some time yet.
