Guests at the Doncaster Business Awards raised £5,655 for Firefly Cancer Support and Awareness, which helps Dearne cancer patients.

The money was raised via a raffle during the awards, for which companies donated prizes to raise funds.

This year’s charity was selected by Stacey Austin, chamber president, pictured above with a charity representative, who said: “I would like to thank our guests at the awards for their generous donations to support this charity.”

Firefly was chosen to help pay tribute to their founder, Denise Dunn, a well-known and much loved figure, who lost her own battle with cancer last year.
