Sheffield Diving Club is 1 of only 9 sports club’s across South Yorkshire to have been selected to take part in the very first South Yorkshire Charity Sports Challenge. This fantastic initiative is administrated by Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids charity. Each club has 30 days to the World Cup Final on Sunday July 15th, to raise as much money as possible, with the guarantee that each group gets their fundraising efforts matched to the value of £2,500 by Hallam FM. A further £2,500 will be awarded to the group that raises the most money across the competition, plus a further four £500 cash prizes! Sheffield Diving is raising £5,000 to purchase an additional new 1 metre diving board. More diving boards will mean better access and opportunities for children around the City. This means we can provide more children and young people with the chance to learn to dive, increase opportunities to disadvantaged children whilst developing a Disability Diving class.
