Keebles scores £1,825 for St Luke’s at football fundraiser

Keebles has raised an impressive £1,825 for St Luke’s Hospice Sheffield after hosting a football tournament for city businesses.

Eleven businesses across the property, IT, finance and healthcare sectors in the Sheffield City Region competed to win the trophy, which was lifted by Shorts in a deserving win.

Keebles and St Luke’s also created a joint team to take part in the action.

Simon Gorman, marketing manager at Keebles, said: “St Luke’s is an organisation which is at the heart of our community.”

“It’s been great to bring together people from across the city and it’s been a brilliant way for us to work together to help raise money for such a worthy cause.”

The money donated will go towards the charity’s work in offering palliative care and support to terminally ill adults and their families in Sheffield.

Jack Kidder, corporate fundraising manager at St Luke’s, said: “We’re very thankful for all the effort made by the Keebles team in both organising the tournament and raising so much money in the process.”

“Most of our funding comes from public donations, so any funds raised to support St Luke’s will go an extremely long way in allowing us to continue helping those who need it.”

The law firm recently raised £800 for St. Luke’s by completing national endurance challenge Tough Mudder.

A 10-person team from the firm trained for 12 weeks to tackle the 10-mile course in Eden, Skipton, in order to raise the funds to donate to the hospice.
