BB with Love is back

‘SIMPLY THE BEST’ is returning for 2023 – Get ready for the best year yet!

We are delighted to announce that we have collaborated with the fantastic Croke family, once again, to bring ‘BB with Love’ back to the illustrious Sheffield City Hall for another incredible year.

If you’re new to this star-studded fundraising event, you’re in for a real treat – and if you have attended the previous two years, you’ll know exactly what pizzazz to expect!

BB with love was founded in 2021 by Michael, Rachel, Sean, and Matthew Croke, when their magnificent wife and mother Bev Croke (known as ‘BB’ to her loved ones) sadly passed away in March 2021 after fighting breast cancer. Following their heartbreak, Matthew and Rachel decided to celebrate their wonderful mum by introducing ‘SIMPLY THE BEST’ – a glamorous stage production to raise money for cancer patients, in association with us at Weston Park Cancer Charity.

Son and daughter, Matthew and Rachel Croke, said “Our mum had a huge heart and was always the one in the family to go above and beyond to share her love and warmth. Mental health awareness was so significant to her during her life and cancer battle, and she always wished for other people to have the same support in Sheffield. Even if the money raised from Simply the Best only makes a modest difference for Weston Park, it is one thousand percent worth it.”

Past years saw renowned names showcased on Sheffield City Hall’s esteemed stage, including Gok Wan MBE, STEPS star Faye Tozer, TV & West End Star Hayley Tamaddon, Olivier Award Winning Actor Matt Henry MBE, West End & Broadway Star Kerry Ellis, Star of Strictly Come Dancing Kevin Clifton, X Factor Winner Joe McElderry, BGT Finalist Ben Nickless and the wonderful comedy legend Billy Pearce!

The BB with Love charity event has raised over £100k so far, since its launch in 2021, which has helped tremendously towards advanced aftercare, additional research, extra treatments, and alternative remedies for cancer patients and their families. We can’t wait to see what this year brings and are wholeheartedly grateful for the support of the wonderful audiences’ and sponsors’ donations – and, of course, the Croke family.

If you’re eager to add 2023’s glitzy ‘Forever in Our Hearts’ cancer fundraiser to your diary, save the date for Sunday 1st October 2023 – tickets go on sale 17/03/2023.
