Women of Mother of God Parish, Sheffield, (W@MOG) were asked by one of their number to raise money for the Cavendish Cancer Care Centre, which supports people coping with the impact of diagnosis and illness. So at one of our meetings, we all brought contributions for a Chocolate Lovers’ hamper, a Ladies’ Pamper hamper and a Just for Men hamper, to add to the prizes in their Christmas Draw. In the end we had enough for four hampers, choc-a-block with fabulous goodies.
Jonny Cole, Fundraising Manager for Cavendish Cancer Care, invited us along to the Centre and showed us around, informing us about the wonderful work that goes on, thanks to a dedicated, highly skilled team. As the photograph shows, our trip to the Centre took place on a surprisingly beautiful sunny day …. which was highly appropriate because the Centre, on Wilkinson Street in Sheffield, brightens the lives of all who use it. Support and understanding is literally just a phone call away.
SO, we hope you bought tickets for their Cavendish Christmas Cracker draw, and we hope many of you are among the winners!
