COME AND JOIN OUR STAMPEDE FOR CHILDREN’S CHARITY
Dear Friends and Fellow Lovers of Henderson’s Relish,
We would like you to join us for a special celebration of Henderson’s and to help us raise money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital on Thursday July 14. We will also introduce you to Hendophant, a proud and colourful member of the giant herd of elephant sculptures who are descending on the city this month.
We are hosting this celebratory event, in conjunction with the University of Sheffield, at Jessop West café in Leavygreave Road between 4.00pm and 8.00pm on July 14. There will be 100 signed and numbered limited edition prints of Hendophant on sale at £15, together with 1,000 bottles of specially-themed Hendophant Henderson’s Relish (£3) and a number of popular Henderson’s merchandise. All proceeds go to The Children’s Hospital Charity.
There will also be Henderson-themed nibbles and refreshments. It promises to be a very special occasion and we are looking forward to welcoming friends and customers, old and new, to help raise money for such a worthwhile charity. We are so proud to be taking part in one of the biggest mass-participation art events in Sheffield’s history.
Hendophant, the work of talented artist Matt Cockayne, will be on display opposite our old factory on Leavygreave Road. We would like to thank Matt for his tremendous work. He is one of so many great artists in Sheffield who have created some iconic images and homages to our Relish.
Overall The Herd of Sheffield project will feature a sculpture trail of more than 50 beautiful and bespoke painted elephants.
Rebecca Staden, fundraising manager at The Children’s Hospital Charity, said the trail could boost the economy, while raising much-needed funds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital. She explained: “It will bring together schools, companies and businesses from all sectors to create inspiring partnerships and reinforce Sheffield’s status as a vibrant and culturally exciting city.
“The Herd will unite communities, bring thousands of people into the city centre and drive business to the local economy. Other similar projects in cities across the country have seen a huge increase in footfall on the High Street, with economies boosted as a result. The Herd will do just that, while making a lasting contribution to the future of Sheffield Children’s Hospital by raising considerable funds,” said Rebecca.
We believe this is an extremely worthwhile project, which celebrates our city’s heritage and raises money for such an important cause. We do hope that you can join us on what promises to be a very enjoyable and worthwhile afternoon and evening.
The Team at Henderson's Relish
