Sheffield United has selected two new charities to support in the forthcoming season.

The club chose Neurocare and Breast Cancer Care from more than 25 applications from local charities.

It already has long-term partnerships with Weston Park Cancer Hospital, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, The Children’s Hospital and St Luke’s Hospice.

Sheffield United’s Operations Director, Dave McCarthy, said: “We had some fantastic applications and it was great to read of the work the organisations do and how they wanted to work with us.

“Making a decision was really difficult as there are so many good charities out there. We are sure that we have selected two charities where our partnerships can make a real difference.

“We are sure there will be other opportunities to work with some of the other charities during the season.”

Liz Barran, Director of Neurocare, said: “This partnership illustrates Sheffield United’s commitment to the welfare of the their loyal supporters and the people of Sheffield.”

Rosie Mellor, of Breast Cancer Care, added: “We have lots of exciting activities planned with Sheffield United throughout the season.”
