The Master Cutlers Challenge 2022

It's official! Sheffield Assay Office has signed up to take part in this year's Master Cutlers Challenge, raising much needed funds for local families affected by cancer. The challenge was first launched in 2008 and has become one of the largest annual fundraising events in the region.

Over the years, the Challenge has inspired companies, organisations, schools and individuals to raise in excess of half a million pounds for local causes.

This year, the challenge is led by Master Cutler, James Tear and was launched on the 9th March. The challenge will run until the end of September, giving Sheffield Assay Office, and everyone else taking part, 6 whole months to raise as much money as possible.

Please watch this space to see what our staff get up to and how you can support our fundraising efforts for Cavendish Cancer Care, Sheffield.
