Cash Converters franchise raises thousands of pounds
Cash Converters has announced that its Sheffield retailer Cash Converters recently raised £4,195 for Macmillan Cancer Support. According to the information provided, loyal customer and well-known local fundraiser pram man, John Burkhill, is on a mission to raise over £250,000 and the retailer, inspired by his work, set a pledge to help his cause.
Wayne Barrett, store manager of the Cash Converters store on Glossop Road, hosted a Stars in their Eyes themed night where guests saw ‘famous faces’ including Robbie Williams, Frank Sinatra, The Killers and Michael Buble take to the stage. The sell-out event raised £1,000 to go towards John’s fundraising challenge.
Pram man has already raised over £160,000 for Macmillan Cancer and these efforts ensured that he was chosen to carry the Olympic torch through the streets of Sheffield. The torch was then put on display in the Cash Converters store throughout the duration of the sporting events.
Wayne said, “It is fantastic that we have been able to raise such a huge amount and help John with his target of quarter of million pounds. He is an inspiration to all the staff here as well as the people of Sheffield and we would like to thank everyone who has got involved and donated.”
