The first cheque for the Master Cutler’s Challenge 2024 (MCC 2024) was handed over to the Assay Master at the Sheffield Assay Office on Friday, 26th January. The Challenge is in support of the Sheffield Cathedral’s Schools Singing Programme. Ashley Carson, the Assay Master, stated, “We are delighted to be involved in the challenge this year, and the office team will use the £50 to kickstart our fundraising efforts for this important cause. Singing, as a collective activity, enhances confidence, aspirations, and abilities in young people, so we will work hard to maximize our contribution to the Cathedral’s programme.”

The Master Cutler said, “I am delighted to be up and running with the first cheques handed out to such a great organization. I am sure they will bring a lot of benefit to the appeal with their entrepreneurial approach to fundraising.”
