See what’s been happening at the Cathedral Archer Project.
On the 12th and 13th of August we had the fantastic yellow team from the Sheffield United Community Foundation helping us in the project. The SUCF are working with the National Citizen Service who offer 15-17 year olds great opportunities to take on new challenges and learn new skills. They are working with the project ‘share your summer’ encouraging young adults to get involved with local charities and organisations in the Sheffield region.
On Saturday, July 12, groups of family and friends gave up their beds for the night and shared their experiences on social media. The Cathedral Archer Project encouraged supporters to get out their sleeping bags and post a selfie in support of their work with the homeless.
Everyone loves taking selfies at the moment and this campaign encouraged people to do so for a good cause.
Neil Riley, Assistant Chief Executive of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, and Stuart Hindmarsh, STH Deputy Estates Director, are setting the example of being healthy at work and taking on the challenge of riding The Tour de France – the Capsticks’ Way on Friday 4th July, the eve of the Grand Depart in Leeds. They will be doing 190 km (118 miles) between Leeds and Harrogate and to help motiviate them, they are raising money for The Cathedral Archer Project.
On June 24, 2014 a team of enthusiastic cyclists will ride the 24 punishing miles of the Tour De France Grand Depart which lie within the Sheffield city boundary.
The ten volunteers from Amey’s Streets Ahead project will be joined by colleagues from Sheffield City Council and Cycle Boost. They will ride from Langsett Reservoir, north-west of the city, to the finish line on Attercliffe Road, blazing a trail for the Tour de France on July 6.
This week, from the 12 -16 May 2014, Sheffield-based company Lightworks are supporting the Cathedral Archer Project (CAP) Breakfast Club; they are sponsoring a week’s worth of breakfasts to those that use the centre. The Lightworks’ team are helping to serve breakfast throughout the week, with 2 different staff members volunteering each day.
Lightworks are one of the first businesses in Sheffield to sponsor the Breakfast Club scheme; on average, 50 homeless adults benefit from a hot breakfast every day, as well as the other key services that CAP offer, including medical treatment and education.
