More than £11,000 has been raised for a Sheffield charity in memory of a little girl who died of neuroblastoma cancer.

Issabelle’s Appeal was set up in Sheffield and raises money to organise family day trips for children at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Scape Group, an environment procurement specialist which works with Sheffield Council on construction projects, has raised £11,341 for the charity.

It means Issabelle’s Appeal will continue to be able to grant wishes for young children.

Recent wishes fulfilled include a trip to the Harry Potter studios, while another boy received an iPad to keep him entertained during treatment.

Scape raised the money by holding a charity golf day, auction and raffle, which raised £3,000 in total, and a charity quiz which raised £4,325 with Scape’s partner firms.

Andrew Futter, Issabelle’s dad and charity trustee, said: “We would like to thank everybody at Scape for organising these brilliant fundraising events.”
