Please sponsor Sarah!

Sarah Keen, a regular user of our library, is hoping to raise funds for Broomhill Library by running the Sheffield half-marathon on Sunday 14 April. Funds raised will be used for the purchase of new books and toys for the Children’s Library. 

Sarah has created a justgiving page and we will be publicising this widely. As of 30 March £213.00 has been pledged against the target to raise £300.00. Please circulate this to family, friends and neighbours if you are able. Our thanks to Sarah for choosing Broomhill Library as the beneficiary of her commendable effort to prepare for and run in this race. You can donate by following this link:
