Our very own Finance Manager, Matt Green is cycling from Morecambe to Bridlington in aid of the Sheffield Children’s Hospital “Herd of Sheffield” fund and is asking for any help, big or small to achieve this.
Matt added: “As a parent of two children, I am always so grateful for the amazing and truly magnificent work the Sheffield Children’s Hospital do. We are so lucky to have this amazing organisation in our city.”
In tribute to Sheffield and its people, the people at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital have initiated the ‘Herd of Sheffield’, whereby a herd of elephant sculptures will descend on the city for the biggest public art event the city has ever seen!
The event hopes to bring together artists, businesses, groups and communities to host the Herd of Sheffield – a sculpture trail of more than 40 beautiful and bespoke painted elephants, and Bond Bryan Architects has agreed to help. This exciting Wild in Art event brought to you by The Children’s Hospital Charity is hoped to:
* Unite our city – bringing business, communities, artists, individuals and schools together to create a FREE sculpture trail which is accessible to all.
* Attract more visitors – both nationally and regionally, as well as encouraging thousands of people to become a tourist in their own city.
* Invest in the future – with a city wide education programme that can be used for years to come whilst leaving a lasting legacy for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
* Showcase our city – celebrating Sheffield’s heritage and cementing our status as a vibrant and culturally exciting city through this world-class initiative.
* Raise profile and increase visibility – for the city and all involved in the project.
A number of us have volunteered to ‘don the lycra’ and ride the ‘Way of the Roses’, a 170 mile route which takes us from the West coast of England (Morecambe) to the East Coast (Bridlington), through historic cities York and Lancaster, and lesser known gems such as Settle, Pateley Bridge and Ripon.
