Sheffield property consultant experts Monaghans scored a major hit for the 2016 Master Cutler's Challenge after raising more than £3,500 with a charity football match at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane stadium.
As part of their fundraising efforts, a 'Monaghans All Stars' side took on a 'Rest of Property XI', managed by Adrian Lunn and captained by Barry Smith, of Lambert Smith and Hampton. Firms such as Pygott and Crone, Airflow, EY, Domino Interiors and HK Architects provided players.
The Master Cutler's Challenge is the annual charity fundraising extravaganza that sees businesses, groups and individuals take up the challenge of raising money for the Master Cutler's chosen organisations. This year's chosen organisations are St Luke's Hospice in Sheffield and Rotherham Hospice.
The game was sponsored by Sheffield Digital Campus, which donated £1,000. It featured many well-known personalities from the Sheffield City Region's property sector and provided an evening of entertainment to 250 supporters.
"This was a fantastic event and one that really will make a huge difference to the lives of hospice patients in both Sheffield and Rotherham," said St Luke's Corporate Fundraising Coordinator Jack Kidder.
"I would like to thank everyone that was involved in providing a memorable experience for all participants and raising substantial monies for a worthwhile cause. We have already booked the ground for next year's match," said Tan Khan, Regional Director at Monaghans, who managed the All Stars XI.
Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United, added: "The game between the Monaghans All Stars and a Rest of Property XI was great fun, and part of a series of games being held at Bramall Lane where we are helping individuals and organisations raise charity funds by playing at a professional football stadium.
"It proves yet again that there are so many great ways to support the Master Cutler's Challenge."
