The Sheffield Woodturning Club (which has raised many thousands of pounds for charity over the years, this year has chosen to support Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids.
The club will be raising money at various events in the Sheffield area, including Art in the Gardens on September 3 and 4. The members are currently making spinning tops to sell for Cash for Kids at the event which are always a big hit with children and adults alike.
On June 18 the club will present an all day woodturning demonstration by Dave Atkinson. Details of the day can be found on the website www.sheffieldwoodturning.org.uk and tickets are available from the club secretary (also via the website).
The cost is £15 for the day which includes all day refreshments and a good, homemade lunch. Raffle prizes have been generously donated by both Crown Hand Tools and Robert Sorby – two of Sheffield’s world renowned tool manufacturers.
