We’ve donated over £30k to charities that have personal ties to the Tramlines team. In 2018 the money was raised in ‘Nulty’s Bar’ – a bar devoted to our former Festival Director Sarah Nulty who very sadly passed away in 2018. This was a backstage area voluntarily staffed by our Sarah’s friends and colleagues. There was also cash raised through guestlist donations and by merchandise sold on site including the now iconic ‘Be More Nulty’ t-shirts. A huge thanks to Tom J Newell and Rebecca Vincent for the designs and to Drop Dead for printing them all.
Sarah Nulty was our Festival Director from 2013 – 2018 and was working hard on Tramlines 2019 when she sadly passed away at the age of 36 just weeks before the 10th anniversary. Sarah was instrumental in the launch of the festival in 2009, coordinating venues and handling bookings and later working in the commercial department.
The result of all this fundraising has led to Western Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care receiving a whopping £14k each. This money will be spent on research and resources for these charities that do so much good work in Sheffield.
