A DAY on the greens for enthusiast Sheffield fundraisers the Slapheads raised almost £4,000 for St Luke’s.
The Slapheads began raising money for us back in 2008 when they all shaved their heads at Frecheville Sports & Social Club in support of friend Roger Hobson, who had been diagnosed with cancer and was worried about losing his hair.
Since then the group has raised an amazing £18,800 for us in memory of Roger and other much missed friends with a host of activities, including the annual Slaphead Golf Open Day, which is held at Birley Wood Golf Club.
And this year’s golfing challenge, which attracted 30 teams and was followed by a prize presentation at Frecheville Community Sports and Social Club, raised a remarkable £3,700, with more money still coming in.
“The Slapheads really are an outstanding example of enthusiasm and dedication,” said our Community Fundraising Manager Megan Senior.
“Their determination to support the memory of a dear friend has seen them go much further than the extra mile to support St Luke’s and every penny they raise really is making an enormous difference to the lives of all our patients and their families.”
