Charity work at Tankersley Manor

Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England. Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity supports the hospital by funding pioneering cancer research and helping to improve cancer treatments and care for patients from Sheffield, all of South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire.

In 2013 this became the charity for choice for Tankersley Manor after a team member's sister sadly passed away.  With a target of £2,000 to reach, the team soon set about raising funds in earnest - smashing the target raising £3,000. Below are just some of the activities that took place:

  • Guests donated over £500 through a banquet showcase event that they attended
  • An Easter Egg collection was started with donations being made by staff, guests and leisure club members and all eggs donated to the children's ward at the hospital
  • Cake bakes were held throughout the year raising over £200 
  • Tammy Best, HR Manager, bravely took to the skies with a Sky dive jump and raised £700
  • Tankersley Summer Fete was held over bank holiday August with volunteers making this a real family dun day out and raising £1200 in the process
  • Health club members and staff pitted against each other to raise £300 in a charity football match
  • A raffle was held at Christmas with our Leisure club members where over £100 was raised

Other Activities

Tankersley Manor played host to our local Brownies on several occasions where Pat Bagnall, Breakfast Supervisor arranged litter picks and gardening so that the young ladies could earn their badges and they were handsomely rewarded with hot dogs and chips for all their hard work

We are also very proud sponsors of our very own Giraffe - Jambo - at Doncaster Wildlife Park.  The foundation was established in May 2013 with the aim of promoting for the benefit of the public, the conservation and welfare of exotic and other species of endangered wildlife both in their natural habitat and in captivity.

After a successful 2013, Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice will be our chosen charity for 2014.
