Charity Cash Boost from Race Festival

14th December 2011

                       Two local charities have received a cash boost following the successful St Leger Festival in Doncaster.

Kickstart and Freeman College both received cheques for £505 from the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce which donated the proceeds from its raffle at the prestigious race event. The Chamber hosted an exclusive Winning Post Marquee at St Leger in September for business leaders from across the Sheffield City Region. Freeman College was the nominated charity for the event, while Kickstart is the Chamber's charity of the year. Kickstart provides a rehabilitation programme to help people overcome the effects of substance misuse, and empowering drug users to take control of their lives as well as recognising their responsibility to themselves and others as a valuable part of the community. Freeman College is part of the Ruskin Mill Educational Trust which has pioneered a unique student-centred approach to the education and care of young people who have often been excluded from mainstream education and training.
