Master Cutler's Challenge 2019
19th November 2018
We’re incredibly proud to announce that Rotherham Hospice has been chosen alongside St Luke’s in Sheffield, as one of the two chosen charities for the 12th annual Master Cutler’s Challenge!
The creative brilliance & teamwork of businesses, individuals, and organisations across South Yorkshire will be on show throughout 2019 as they work to turn a £50 initial investment, into as much as they can raise!
The new Master Cutler – Nick Cragg, the 380th Master Cutler since the first in 1624 - is keen to see more businesses involved than ever before.
“We are really grateful to Outokumpu, Senior Architectural Systems, Nicholas Associates and Jenkinson Insurance who have generously sponsored the seed fund to allow this to happen,
My wife Liz and I have visited both hospices and were immediately convinced that these were two organisations that we wanted to work with because they do such fantastic work.
“We were overwhelmed when we learnt the amount of money both hospices have to raise annually simply to keep functioning on a daily level and that is why we want our supporters to start their fundraising activities and make a difference to two charities that make such a great difference to the lives of so many people.”
Head of Fundraising at Rotherham Hospice, Liz Barran said:
“We are delighted to be chosen as one of 2019’s benefitting charities from the Master Cutler Challenge. It’s not only an honour to be part of such a prestigious challenge it is also humbling to see so many local companies willing to get involved for the two charities involved.
“Here at Rotherham Hospice we need to raise over £2.5m per year to continue to provide the first class care that we do, both in the hospice its self and out in the community. Being chosen to be involved with the Master Cutler Challenge is such an exciting time for all involved and we can’t wait to get started”
The Master Cutler Challenge kicks off on February 7th 2019 at in the stunning surroundings of Cutler’s Hall in Sheffield, with the charities, participating organisations and business, as well as the Master Cutler himself there on the day to launch the Challenge!
