Have your say

A Sheffield firm has volunteered to be the headline sponsor of St Luke’s Hospice’s ‘Night Strider’ event.

The sponsored walking half marathon and 10k challenge are to be held at 9.30pm on Saturday, October 17 to raise cash for the city’s only hospice.

Brightside-based firm Gripple is sponsoring it.

St Luke’s Hospice events manager, David Martin, said: “Gripple’s sponsorship is an outstanding example of a great Sheffield company supporting a fantastic Sheffield cause.

“It’s brilliant that a company like Gripple is not only giving us vital financial help but will also be putting forward a team to take part in Night Strider and even providing volunteer support along the route.”
