Harry Hague shortlisted for the Dynamic Fundraiser category
One of Weston Park Cancer Charity’s youngest fundraisers has been shortlisted in the search to find Sheffield’s most inspirational youngsters.
Harry Hague, aged ten from Bradfield has been shortlisted for the Dynamic Fundraiser category at The Sheffield Star Superkids Awards which return to the Crucible Theatre on Tuesday 5th December. The award recognises youngsters which go the extra mile to raise money for a charity of cause which they are passionate about.
The Sheffield Wednesday Football Club super fan, Harry, ran the Sheffield 2K in a bid to raise money to create a better life for the region’s cancer patients. The entrepreneurial youngster pledged to run in his rival’s clubs shirt upon reaching his £500 fundraising target.
The youngster garnered further support from his rival’s club, Sheffield United, by arranging for the football shirt to be signed and then auctioned off at The Nags Head pub in Loxley to raise even more money.
To date, the fundraising superstar has raised over £700 to help fund enhancements, unavailable on the NHS, at Weston Park Hospital – the region’s only specialist cancer hospital.
Speaking on the nomination, Gemma Noon, Community Fundraiser at Weston Park Cancer Charity said; “We are so proud of Harry and it is an absolute honour to have him on Team Weston Park. He is an inspiration to all of us and it’s great to see him being recognised for his commitment and dedication to help others.”
The award ceremony, hosted at the Crucible Theatre will see awards handed out to ten categories for children aged under 18 – all of which have gone over and above to stand out in their communities.
