The perfect Christmas gift for Sheffield Wednesday fans

7th November 2018

St Luke's and the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme have the perfect Christmas gift for any Sheffield Wednesday fan! The Charity Cup is the unique sporting challenge that raises money for Sheffield's only hospice and the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme.

To date the Charity Cup including the event held as part of the 2016 Master Cutler's Challenge has raised over £40,000. And organisers are hoping that the 2019 event will be the biggest and the best to date. Kicking off on Saturday March 23, two Sheffield Wednesday teams both home and away sides - will battle it out to win the prestigious Charity Cup. And to take part and play for Wednesday alongside some special sporting guest stars - all you have to do is raise a minimum of £500 per person. In return, players get full use of the SWFC player's facilities and changing rooms, receive a SWFC kit, and a meal after the game for themselves and a guest in the 1867 suite as well as a souvenir team photograph and player's medal. -This really would make the perfect gift for a real Owls fan, said St Luke's Corporate Fundraising Manager Jack Kidder. -It's a truly unique opportunity to step out onto the famous Wednesday pitch and be part of a memorable sporting occasion.
