Running to Raise Funds for St Luke's Hospice

Published: 18th October 2021

On Sunday 26th September, staff from our Library and Analytical Services department joined forces to raise money for St Luke’s Hospice by running the Asda Foundation Sheffield 10K. The weather was glorious, there was a great atmosphere in city centre and along the route.

Belen, Adele and Emma can’t thank everyone enough for their generosity in supporting them in their fundraising campaign and we are delighted to say that a huge £863.00 was raised for this worthwhile charity! A massive thank you from us all.  

The just giving page is still open if you would like to make a contribution:

The Sheffield Assay Office was established in 1773, under an Act of Parliament and today the company assays and hallmarks the precious metals - silver, gold, platinum and palladium. Sheffield Assay Office is one of only four UK assay offices who all work to uphold the Hallmarking Act of 1973 and continue to ensure consumer protection for customers purchasing precious metals.
