As part of our final year at Sheffield Hallam University, we have been tasked to host a virtual event to raise money for the charity Museums Sheffield. To help fundraise for the event, we will have a range of activities including:
- Walking a total of 540km over the month of February
- Raffles (keep an eye out for some exciting prizes!)
- Art prints for sale made by our team
Any donations made to this page will go towards the running of the event. The profit made from the event will go directly to the charity to help support the work they do with any surplus from this page also being donated. Even £1 can go a long way, both the team and the charity appreciate any donations!
Meet Museums Sheffield
The charity is responsible for three major cultural locations in Sheffield: Graves Gallery, Millennium Gallery & Weston Park Museum.
The charity regularly hosts free events for children, offering company for the elderly facing loneliness and supports others in need. Below is a short video to showcase the great work they provide and how your donations can help:
By donating anything you can, will help Museums Sheffield continue with its caring work for the community. Your support is needed now more than ever with the charity struggling greatly during the pandemic and its unfortunately long closure over this period.
Mirror Events will be hosting The Art of Murder a Virtual Murder Mystery for the charity, but to hold this event we need your help and donations to get things going!
This event intends to raise money for Museums Sheffield as donations are needed now more than ever since the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Museums Sheffield typically generates a third of its income through shops, cafés, events and hospitality, as well as the donations given by weekly visitors. However, now with the doors closed again it has made it difficult to generate this vital income.
Donations will go towards the organising of the event and any surplus will be directly donated to Museums Sheffield.
Your contribution will make a huge difference and will help to ensure the museums and galleries can continue to provide great cultural experiences for the people of Sheffield and beyond, now and for generations to come.
Thank you for all your support,
Meg, Iola, Lauren and Edel!
