A SHEFFIELD couple’s latest fundraising ball has taken their total for The Children’s Hospital Charity to £903,000 over 22 years.

David and Jean Fyfe’s Daffodil Ball, at Baldwins Omega in Brincliffe Edge, added more than £30,000.

Auction prizes included a pair of Jessica Ennis’ running shoes, a recording studio package at Universal Music and tickets to see boy band One Direction.

David, who runs family business Fyfe Financial Ltd, said: “Fundraising for The Children’s Hospital Charity has become a way of life but this is such an achievement for us.”

The new money will fund specialist equipment for transnasal surgery.
