Runner Sam launches Sheffield Chamber hospice partnership
20th April 2016
Sheffield Chamber Events and Membership Co-ordinator Sam Christmas launched the organisation's new partnership with St Luke's Hospice by taking part in the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon and raising more than £300.
Sam, who was cheered on by colleagues Tom Sutton and Emma-Jane Wright, completed the course in one hour and 46 minutes and has already raised £310, with the figure still rising. -This was a brilliant way to begin what we know is going to be a great partnership, said St Luke's Corporate Fundraising Manager Joasia Lesniak. -We are delighted that an organisation that reaches out to all the most important members of Sheffield's business community is now supporting the city's only adult hospice. Sam added ''The Chamber has always been committed to supporting local charities and this year is no different! As our Chamber Charity of the Year for 2016 we will try to raise as much money as possible for St Luke's to help support them in the truly ground breaking work that they undertake'' To donate please visit https://www.justgiving.com/S-CHRISTMAS For more information on St Luke's visit www.stlukeshospice.org.uk
