Fundraise with fans derby

2 May 2013

The two teams in Sheffield may not have faced each other this season but Owls and Blades supporters still battled for bragging rights in a recent charity match.

The Sheffield Fans Derby (SFD) is an eleven-a-side football game played between Wednesday and United fans to raise cash for good causes across the city.

The last meeting raised more than £4,000 for brain tumour awareness and research charity Sophie’s Wish which was presented to them on the pitch before the Owls clash with Ipswich.

Organisers of the event are now calling on supporters to get involved in SFD10 which will take place on Saturday 18 May at the BT Local Business Stadium and will be in aid of the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind (SRSB).

SRSB provide opportunities, support, friendship and services to more than 3,000 blind and partially sighted children and adults in Sheffield through their state of the art facilities at their Mappin Street Centre and at their residential care home, Cairn Home, complete with purpose-built sensory garden.
