Local and city charities to benefit from festival donations

The two charities that will receive a share of any money made from this year’s Crosspool Festival are Care in Crosspool and Roundabout.

Care in Crosspool provides a befriending service for the elderly, organising regular visits to someone living on their own.

Roundabout is a local Sheffield youth housing charity providing shelter, support and life skills to young people.

Last year, £500 was raised for Parents’ Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia and £500 was raised for community facility CDYST.

In 2013, £1,300 was shared between Weston Park Cancer Information and Support Centre and the 36th Sheffield Scout Group based on Benty Lane.
