Fundraisers enjoy fun in the sun to help support cancer charity

Have your say

Families flocked to a Sheffield park to raise money for a good cause over the weekend.

A gala to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support was held in Millhouses Park on Saturday.

Entertainment included a climbing wall, falconry displays and classic cars as well as belly dancing and trade stalls.

Rob Turner, from Macmillan, who was at the event said: “We were very busy. It was a lovely day weather-wise and there was fantastic entertainment.”

Rob added: “Lots of people came along and enjoyed the day which was really appreciated.”

The Friends of Millhouses Park ran duck races on the day in support of the charity and there was a dog show with novelty categories including fancy dress and dog that most looks like its owner.

The event is the first of its kind to be held in the park but it is hoped the gala will become an annual fixture.
