See what’s been happening at the Cathedral Archer Project.
A little and often goes a long way
DLA Piper has been supporting the Cathedral Archer Project for over 10 years. They have made donations of money and food, volunteered and are members of the Breakfast Club, sponsoring a week of breakfasts every year and raising between £500 and £1,000 annually through their Carol Service.
The impact of their support goes a long way. Members of the team come into the project regularly to help serve breakfast and help in the stores, sorting food and clothing donations. They learn about the work the Project does to support the homeless in Sheffield first hand and then help their friends and colleagues gain a fuller understanding.
Vikki McKay, partner at DLA Piper, commented, “We want to make an impact on our local community and being able to be hands on as well as offer financial support is important. Our team learns about helping others, listening and understanding from their time at CAP. They come back with stories of how the people that use the project really appreciate their time.”
If your business could support the work we do here at CAP please email Ruby on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve been putting our heads together in the fundraising team recently and trying to come up with ways to get bigger, bolder and more exciting in our fundraising efforts. You told us that you want to be tested and that’s just what we plan to do! Of course, the focus is still on helping the most vulnerable but now you can break a sweat whilst doing it too.
Will you join us on Saturday 15th October and Walk In My Shoes?
The event starts at 11am and together we will walk 5 miles through Endcliffe Park. Everybody is welcome!
We believe that in a community people look after each other. Together, we will walk to ensure less people face homelessness alone.
For a registration form or for more information please email Ruby on email@example.com
Last week the photography group, with their tutor Mark took a trip to Mam Tor in the Peak District.
Despite the weather being a little windy the sun was shining and the group made it to the top and saw amazing views of the Peaks.
Our weekly photography group takes regular trips round Sheffield city centre and local parks to capture different sides to Sheffield. Some of the groups work has featured in exhibitions such as the Street View Project.
Activities like these build skills and confidence but are also fun and social!
We did it!
Tim, our CEO, Jade and Ruby from the marketing team and 10 of our fantastic supporters ran the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday.
It was tough for TeamCAP and the hills were relentless but the sun was shining and the support was amazing so got our team through!
Tim was especially pleased as he managed to run the 13.1 miles in an impressive 2 hours and 11 minutes.
Thank you to everyone who ran, sponsored or supported our team, we couldn’t have done it without you!
