FUNDRAISERS danced, putted and fired their way to a £22,000 total for one of Sheffield’s best-loved charities in just two weeks.

A bumper two weeks of activities started with more than 200 twinkle-toed dancers taking part in a two-hour Zumbathon which raised £1,573 for Neurocare.

The event was followed by the organisation’s annual charity golf day held at Hallamshire Golf Club, which they hope will raise £6,000 when all the totals are added up.

And the next day there was a charity clay pigeon shoot held at Chatsworth House.

St Luke’s Hospice and Cavendish Cancer Care will also benefit from the funds raised at this event, which in its eight-year history has made a whopping £536,000 for charity.

This year Neurocare hope to receive £15,000 from the event.

Emma Douglas, fundraiser for Neurocare, said: “We have had such a fabulous few weeks and are thoroughly inspired by the enthusiasm and dedication of our fundraisers.

“Neurocare has some amazing projects to fund this year which will help people with a range of neurological conditions in Sheffield and surrounding cities, so this is a big boost for the charity.”
