Fundraise for the University of Sheffield 

In the last six years, members of staff, alumni, students and friends of the University have raised over £600,000 to support a wide range of areas including research projects, student scholarships and student clubs and societies.

Our wonderful supporters have organised or taken part in any number of activities – they have run, hiked, cycled, rowed, baked cakes, boxed, skydived, held garden parties, curry nights, quizzes … the list is constantly growing.

Some have raised funds to say thank you for having benefited from some of our world-leading medical research, some have wanted to support their sports club, others have wanted to raise money in memory of a family member or friend.

“Where do I start?”
