A greyhound racing evening held recently at Sheffield Owlerton Stadium on 2 October raised £6,800 for the Yorkshire region of Variety, the Children’s Charity. Over 220 people from leading companies across the region supported the event. John Sutcliffe, a member of the Yorkshire committee of Variety and Finance Director of Henry Boot PLC, said:

“This is the third year in a row we have run the event and it is growing in popularity, it’s great to have the continued support of many Yorkshire businesses. It offers a ‘fun’ night out for our valued supporters, who also have the satisfaction of knowing they have raised much needed funds for local youngsters.”
