See what’s been happening at the Cathedral Archer Project.
Throughout October and November we had Producer Nicholas Alexander in to run a series of songwriting workshops. During five songwriting sessions, people had the opportunity to learn about song structure, lyrics, melody, and arrangement, and then went on to compose their own songs. Nick then put together backing tracks at his studio, and the group recorded all of the vocals at The Musical Works in Sheffield.
The result has been two songs written and sung by some of the people who use our project. They are free to download, but please consider making a donation, however small.

This weekend (11-12 June) David Forrester, Marc Douglas and Graeme McCarthy from Lightworks Design are taking part in the Endure 24 hour running challenge raise money for The Cathedral Archer Project at Wasing Park in Berkshire. They will be running in relay over the 24 hours and aiming for between 40 and 50 miles EACH!
This is a major endurance event and will push the team to the limits. Team leader, David Forrester said, “The knowledge that we're raising funds for the homeless in Sheffield will undoubtedly spur us on when all our joints are hurting and our brains are telling us to stop!!!”
Tim Renshaw, CEO at the Archer Project said, “We are used to working with people that have not slept overnight and have been on their feet walking around the city trying to keep warm, this is another type of endurance and we are very grateful to David, Marc and Graeme for their support.”
