Senior Architectural Systems’ director Mark Wadsworth has helped to raise an impressive £1,100 for charity by taking part in Christmas festivities with Sheffield Riverdale Round Table. Mark, dressed as Father Christmas, took to a large Santa’s sleigh on the Sheffield streets to fundraise for Help for Heroes.
The sleigh, which is kept at Senior’s Denaby site, has this year been given a new lease of life by Richard Steckles, director at fabricator and installer Hepworth Framework. In time for Christmas, Richard kindly stripped and rebuilt the festive wagon, which has been a staple of the Round Table’s annual seasonal fundraising for 40 years.
Mark said: “I am always astounded by the effort put in by the volunteers from Sheffield Riverdale Round Table. To see the beaming children being brought out by their parents to meet Santa, makes all the effort and preparation worthwhile. The unbelievable kindness of Richard and his team at Hepworth Framework has meant that we can carry on this tradition for years to come, meeting the next generations who say ‘I remember you doing this when I was a child’.”
