Mums appeal for help to launch their cancer cause

A group of mums from Sheffield are urging people to donate raffle prizes for the launch of their fundraising charity.

Sheffield Mums Against Cancer needs prizes and auction gifts for the sell-out event at Baldwin’s Omega, on Brincliffe Hill, later this month.

They started the group after a mum lost a friend to cancer and started competing in runs for charity.

Further fundraisers are also planned, with money split between the city’s St Luke’s Hospice and Weston Park Cancer Hospital.

The launch is on Thursday, March 20, and will include a six-course meal, DJ and auction – email to donate a raffle prize or for more details.
