Over £20,000 raised for local Charities
2020 may have been the year we couldn’t party with you all at Hillsborough park, but you did help raise a staggering amount of money for charity.
For obvious reasons the 2020 event couldn’t go ahead which meant we couldn’t fundraise how we normally would. Instead, we made some T-Shirts, held a Raffle and collaborated on a Beer with Thornbridge for you lot to enjoy and be able to donate some money to some great local charities. Who, by the way, are doing some invaluable work and helping those most vulnerable in Sheffield.
The current running total is a staggering £20,000 and we’ve still got beers left to sell… incredible!
Emily Morton – Chief Executive of Disability Sheffield said – “We will be using the generous donation from Tramlines to support 2 of our projects. Sheffield Cycling 4 All will be adding two new folding e-trikes to their existing Trike Loan scheme, increasing peoples access to cycling. The scheme, which is free of charge, enables people with disabilities or long-term health conditions to borrow an e-trike for one to three months outside of Hillsborough park to experience the fun, independence, and health benefits of cycling in Sheffield.”
Chris, from S6 Foodbank commented on the donations too – “The donation from Tramlines will be used to buy items which are out of stock during the next season. On a weekly basis, we’re feeding around 1000 people per week and using 8 tonnes of food, which is worth about £10,000. We expect this to rise by at least 20% during the winter months. This will allow us to buy items in bulk to feed everyone who have been referred to us. As brilliant as the food donations are, this is no longer enough to sustain the demand.”
We’d like to thank you for your ongoing support, you’ve done us proud and we couldn’t have done it without you 💚
The remaining tickets for Tramlines 2021 will be going on sale tomorrow at 6pm!
