Redtooth in Cancer Charity Presentation

Redtooth were on hand to present a cheque to Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity after a total of £13,867 was raised at Sheffield United’s 125th anniversary dinner.

Martin Green, Managing Director at Redtooth, who were event partners and masterminded the production of the 125 event, Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United Football Club, and John Holland Sales Ltd business owner Mark Holland, who donated £5,000 on the night, presented the cheque to Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

Receiving the cheque on behalf of the charity were Helen Gentle, Fundraising Manager at Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, and 18-year-old college student Oran Kenyon, from Doncaster, who touched the hearts of many when he shared his story on stage in front of the sell-out crowd at the 125th dinner.

Helen Gentle said: “We are overwhelmed by the support we have received and thanks to the generosity of people on the night and cancer patient, Oran, who told his brave story, we are able to continue funding vital projects which ultimately improves the treatment and care for over 60,000 cancer patients across our region.”

Martin Green said: “It is an honour to have presented the cheque to Oran and Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

“Oran’s story is remarkable and his touching story brought the audience at Sheffield United’s 125thdinner to its feet. I’m delighted that more than £13,000 was raised that evening as it is such a wonderful cause.”

Dave McCarthy said: “We had hoped the event would provide an opportunity to raise vital funds for the Charity but we had never expected to receive such a response and to raise such an amount of money.

“The generosity of all the guests was outstanding and we are truly grateful for their support.”

Throughout 2014, the Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity is marking its 20th anniversary by funding a wide variety of projects for the hospital, including the completion of the new Clinical Research Unit and the Day Case reception refurbishment.
