On Friday 12th February we grabbed our warm things along with many of you across Sheffield. Local people, businesses and schools all joined together to make an extra special effort to raise awareness, as well as funds for those on the street during these cold months.
Students from Sheffield Hallam Events Mangament course are hosting a fantastic 15 events for us over the next two months! Here is a list of all the events if you'd like to come along!
Lent begins on the 10th February and lasts for 40 days ending on the 24th March and we are challenging you to give up something and to donate the cost you would spend to help the homeless.
Can you give a luxury up this Lent and donate what you would spend to help homeless and vulnerable people in Sheffield? How about giving up chocolate, wine or takeaways? The money you save and donate will make a huge difference to the people we work with who have very little.
Here are a few ideas you might like to try…
Your daily takeaway cuppa on the way into work?
Perhaps you could resist that weekend box of chocs or magazines?
However, if you aren’t sure you can live without your favourite food or drink, why not consider walking to work rather than driving or catching public transport?
Packing a lunch to work rather than nipping into town on your lunch break?
Swapping to an cheaper brand of tea or coffee?
These are just a few ideas but we would love to hear if you’re getting involved and what you’re giving up, so please let us know! Email Jade on firstname.lastname@example.org
Giving up something for 40 days is easier than sleeping on the streets for 40 days.
Give up and Help change a life
For many people January brings with it a new start with hopes and resolutions. We have things to look forward to and plan for. But for the homeless people who come through our doors it can often be a very different case.
We've launched our annual cosy campaign 'Wear a Woolly' and we need your help to reach our £10,000 target!
This year 'Wear a Woolly' is taking place on the Friday 12th February and we wants to encourage local people and businesses from around the Sheffield and South Yorkshire area to take part in the event which sees people wearing something woolly – whether that's a jumper, hat, scarf, socks – for the day.
