Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival has so far raised just shy of £20,000 from its online charity event, ‘A Celebration of Tramlines’

The event took place over the weekend of 31 July – 02 August when the festival was initially due to happen. ‘A Celebration of Tramlines’ featured a series of online events and videos, including the ‘Big Fat Charity Raffle’, ‘Rev’s Pub Quiz’ and exclusive performances from artists like The Slow Readers Club and The Sherlocks.

The money raised will be donated to Roundabout, IForge, Disability Sheffield, Sheffield S6 Foodbank and Cavendish Cancer Care.

The festival also raised money from the sale of Limited Edition ‘Chari-Tees’ which are still on sale now and include bespoke designs from Sheffield artist, Tom J Newell and the Tramlines team. In addition to this, Thornbridge brewery created, ‘In The Park’, a session IPA which is also still on sale via the Thornbridge website with 10% of all proceeds going to the chosen charities.
