Sheffield born and bred clothing company Drop Dead create unique limited pieces inspired by internet culture, life on the road and an ever-evolving taste in music and art, have started supporting the Cathedral Archer Project to help the homeless in Sheffield.
With their innovative designs and quirky collections- (not to mention their new Gremlins range) Drop Dead are unique to Sheffield and are proud of their place in the Steel City and their local community.
Caroline from Drop Dead said “It is such a privilege to work with the Cathedral Archer Project and to help such an amazing cause."
Caroline also joined in the project’s annual sleep out in March alongside her colleagues Josh and Dan from the Drop Dead team. They raised a fantastic £1,052.73 for the project, smashing their original target of £500!
After the sleep out Caroline commented, “I feel very proud of myself and the Drop Dead team for completing the sleep out challenge. Thankfully it didn’t rain but I cannot help but feel that we failed to see the full reality of street life and the everyday challenges faced by the homeless. As I sat on my sofa later the next evening, welcoming the warmth and comfort of my own home, I couldn’t help but feel saddened at the thought that what I had experienced for just one night was an everyday reality for thousands of others day after day and night after night, through wind, rain and snow.”
Alongside fundraising, Drop Dead have also signed up to CAP’s Breakfast Club, where they will sponsor a week of breakfasts at the project. They will receive a certificate and be invited into the project to serve breakfast to see first-hand the people their support is helping.
Drop Dead also designed t-shirts for the Sheffield half marathon as three of the CAP team ran in the event and also donated a huge selection of clothing for the project to sell at an event they hosted.
Tracy Viner, from the Cathedral Archer Project said ‘I am thrilled to be collaborating with Drop Dead. It’s fantastic to work with such a refreshing, creative group of people. We have exciting things coming up and can’t wait to get started’.
