Sheffield charity raises £17,000 in just a month

Have your say

Big-hearted fundraisers raised more than £17,000 for a Sheffield charity in just one month - taking part in everything from bake sales to bungee jumps.

They have boosted the coffers of Neurocare, which raises money for life-saving equipment on the neurosurgery wards of Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

Bosses organise their Neurocare November fundraising campaign each year, encouraging at least 100 people to collect £100, and this year was another record-breaker.

Corin McCann, fundraiser at the charity based in Hunters Bar, said: “The Neurocare staff got involved too and put themselves forward be voted for forfeits.

“The votes came flooding in and the staff had to endure forfeits such as eating a whole chilli, running a 5K race and getting ‘custard pied’.”

The campaign will be repeated again next year.
