Customers and staff at the New Barrack Tavern on Sheffield's Penistone Road have raised over £700 for Sheffield Children's Hospital in a charity day that almost didn't happen.

After three days putting up lighting, canopy and stage, the early hours of Saturday morning saw torrential rain CHARITY 2which, according to landlady, Steph Woods, “sadly brought most of canopy and lighting down with a leak on main stage as well as a leak inside.

“Kevin and I honestly thought the day couldn’t go ahead with so much to do and it still pouring with rain. The first thing was to sort leaks, then the call went out on Facebook that we needed help for the day to go ahead, and our prayers were answered when Dave Thornett of King Bee, and Sam, Terry and AnCHARITY 3gela Mitchell arrived to put the lighting and canopy back in record time. A huge thanks to them.

“The day went ahead and we started with our good friends Laughing Gravy/Atomic setting up their PA on outside stage.

Next came Your Next, King Bee, Laughing Gravy, Amelia Carter Band, Atomic, and The 601 Club. All were amazing and all a massive part of our NBT family. It’s thanks too to Tonya and John Kennedy from the Children’s Hospital and to our suppliers and friends for their continued support – Acorn Brewery, Bradfield Brewery, Small Beer Ltd and Eric Twiggs. Equally important were our customers and Team NBT were fantastic.

“The rain stopped and the BBQ started and we raised a superb sum for a great Sheffield Charity,” says Steph.
