On Cue for St Wilfrid’s Residential
The Cue Ball was again held at the St Paul’s Mercure Sheffield on 17 April. The event is held the night before the matches commence in the World Professional Snooker Championships at the Crucible.
The glittering occasion brought together the great and the good from the worlds of snooker, business and local politics in this charity dinner.
Each year a local charity is nominated to receive the proceeds of the event, which includes a raffle and auction. This time the recipients were St Wilfrid’s Centre for the homeless and vulnerable who are appealing for money for their new residential project.
The magnificent total of £26,000 raised was a record and St Wilfrid’s Director, Kevin Bradley said, “It was such a great night and what an amazing sum of money towards our Residential unit. It again shows that the people of Sheffield are ‘tops’ when looking after those less fortunate”.
St Wilfrid’s Centre were delighted to work recently with Roundabout, a charity working with homeless young people, when they held a ‘SleepOut’ down at Bramall Lane, the home of Sheffield United.
Over 100 people signed up to have a taste of how it feels to sleep rough which raised thousands for both charities.
