Putting the “Fun” in Fundraiser (as well as the “draiser”)

UPDATE – WE RAISED £1125 FOR SHARROW FESTIVAL AND £1160 FOR PEACE IN THE PARK FESTIVAL! BIG THANKS TO ALL INVOLVED!

So December was a month dedicated to giving. Well you know what, why wait until the month after the penultimate month of the year to give, why not start in the month 10 months before the penultimate month of the year – January!

We’ve decided to give something. Yep, we’re giving money. Well, we’re giving your money. But we’ll be the ones collecting the money and that’s what counts right? RIGHT?!

Where’s the money going we hear you cry? Well it’s going to the organisers of the family friendly, community driven, Sheffield based Sharrow Festival and Peace in the Park Festival. As many of you know, Peace in the Park didn’t happen last year because of lack of funds so it would be a right-on good time all around if it happened this year. And one way of making it happen is to attend a fundraiser. So! Without further ado, here’s what we’ve got planned for you all…
