Earlier this year, we signed up to take part in the 2019 Master Cutler's Challenge. The challenge is now in its 12th year, and this year has chosen St Luke's Hospice in Sheffield and Rotherham Hospice as charities to support. Businesses across the city region are invited to raise as much as possible in fundraising for the two charities, and we have already been busy, raising over £1,000 with dress down Fridays, monthly cake sales and a variety of office sweepstakes and Last Man Standing competitions.
The next event planned is a sponsored walk setting off on Saturday 9th May from Rotherham Hospice, and finishing at St Luke's hospice; a distance of around 21km. A team of around 11 staff and one of the partners will cover the 13 mile distance, walking along the five weirs walk and stopping off at Meadowhall Shopping Centre and Sheffield City Centre along the way. It is expected to take in the region of 4.5 hours to complete the route and we are hoping for fine weather and loads of support along the way.

If you would like to contribute towards our efforts and help to ease the pain from those blistered feet, then please visit our Virgin Money Giving page to pledge your donation, quoting 'Sponsored Walk' in the message. We are extremely grateful for any donations contributed and thank you for your support.
Further events are planned over the summer, and it is hoped that we can reach our target of £5,000 before the challenge ends in September.
