Recently my dad Derek Russell passed away after being diagnosed with cancer last year.
He was a bus driver for more than 35 years and for around the last 20 years raised money for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital. During that time he raised money in numerous ways but mainly through a collection box on his bus.
Derek raised more than £18,000 through this collection box. On behalf of the rest of my family and the Sheffield Children’s hospital, we would like to thank all those passengers who donated over the years to such a good local cause.
We hope that those donations have gone some way to help the staff at the hospital make a difference to the those who needed their care.
