Sheffield Mutual 2021 Charity Award winners announced
Sheffield Mutual Friendly Society has announced the winners of their 2021 Charity Award.
Earlier in the year, Sheffield Mutual asked its members and the general public to nominate their favourite charities to receive an award. A panel of staff and Board members then shortlisted the charities to put to a public vote.
Sheffield Mutual received thousands of votes and Chief Executive Officer, Jamie Bellamy said:
“It gives me great delight to announce this year’s 2021 Charity Award winners in Raven’s Rescue, Abbie’s Army and Rush House. With it being another difficult year for everyone we hope that these donations will benefit the charities and support them where it’s needed. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the charities that applied and wish you all the best for the future.“
1st place –Raven’s Rescue- £5,000
2nd place – Abbie’s Army - £1,500
3rd place –Rush House - £1,000
Sarah Price from Raven’s Rescue said:
“This is amazing and we cannot thank you enough!
We have recently taken in two puppies that need urgent medical treatment, the Sheffield Mutual award will improve their quality of life and help towards vet treatments for some of our other rescues too.”
Amanda Mifsud, Trustee at Abbie’s Army said:
“We are so grateful to Sheffield Mutual, without this support we really cannot achieve our aims to deliver new opportunities for children diagnosed with DIPG. Together we can truly make a difference in overturning this fatal diagnosis through crucial research. We are absolutely thrilled to receive this funding among so many worthy causes”
Lisa Rachieru, Manager at Rush House commented:
“I just want to start by expressing our deepest gratitude to Sheffield Mutual for this wonderful award and also for giving us the impetus and opportunity to get out there and gather support from our wonderful stakeholders, service users (past and present), colleagues and friends. It has been so affirming to see the support we have. The icing on the cake of course being the 3rd place and £1,000 prize which will make such a massive impact here at Rush.”
