Runners raise cash for kids

FOUR police officers and a lecturer from Sheffield Hallam University raised £650 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital after taking part in a 50-mile sponsored run.

Insp Nigel Taaffe, Insp Nick Gaskell, PC Peter Hague, PC Helen Cutmore and lecturer Charlotte Coleman took part in the Rowbotham’s Round Rotherham International Trail event in October.

The 50-mile route started and finished at Dearne Valley College.

Members of the fundraising team handed a cheque to the hospital this week.
