Over the last two weekends The Sheffield 1000 team and have been lucky enough to be invited to two brilliant football matches.
On Saturday 4th March we were invited to the watch Hallam FC. It was fantastic. The team won - that’s 7 in a row now - and we got to go on the pitch before the game and talk about the charity.
It was a wonderful day and we met so many lovely people and to top it off we got a few new donations for our charity too!
Last Saturday we were guests of Sheffield United at their game against Luton Town.
Let’s not mention the result… it wasn’t a good one… but Dan got to speak in a number of hospitality boxes and on the pitch at halftime all to help raise awareness of what The Sheffield 1000 is all about.
The club were so helpful and Paul Gosney from City Taxis was handing out flyers and cards like a champion. We picked up a number of new members and got to have many great conversations about what we are trying to do in this lovely city of ours.
It has been so encouraging to see Sheffielders get behind the charity and we also need to thank you for all your recent nominations.
Dan’s bike accident and the snow have held up the giving out of some money but over the next few weeks we will be handing out plenty of money to some of the charities and good causes you’ve highlighted. Keep an eye on your emails for updates.
Thanks again for your ongoing support - it really makes a difference.
Have a great week.
Team Sheffield 1000
