Sheffield Women of Steel statue gets go-ahead after fundraiser
A statue commemorating the women who kept Sheffield's steelworks running during both world wars is to be built, after fundraising was completed.
Fundraising began in 2012 to raise £150,000 for the bronze sculpture at Barkers Pool, outside the city hall.
The planned sculpture, commissioned by Sheffield City Council, has been designed by artist Martin Jennings.
A fundraising concert helped the campaign reach its total. The statue will be unveiled in the summer of 2016.
