Gruelling test in aid of hospital

Have your say

MEMBERS of a martial arts group challenged themselves to spend a full day training and raised hundreds of pounds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

The Aikidoka group, based on Eldon Street, in the city centre, aimed to raise £200 in sponsorship – but the total has now reached £500.

The gruelling session, attended by people who had travelled to Sheffield from across the country, lasted 14 hours and involved 36 enthusiasts ranging from beginners to experts.
