Reuben Mitchell, aged 21, from Sheffield recently completed a mammoth challenge to raise funds to support our Christmas appeal.

Reuben successfully completed 3,000 push ups throughout December, raising an incredible £555 in the process.

Speaking ahead of his challenge, Reuben said:

"When I heard about what the charity is doing to help staff and patients this Christmas, that was all the motivation I needed. I guess that I wanted to do my bit to honour the work of our hospitals – something even more important in 2020.

“Given the restrictions that are in place, fundraising isn’t as easy as it might be, so I wanted to do something a little bit different. But its so easy to do something yourself. I really would urge everybody to do their bit to help.

“I've had the pleasure of getting to know both family and friends who have and do work for the NHS. They are some of the most kind, caring and positive people I have ever met. I admire what they do everyday and want to do my part to help out. And I know that Sheffield Hospitals Charity work tirelessly to support our hospitals – so what better cause?”
