See what’s been happening at the Cathedral Archer Project.
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.
At the Cathedral Archer Project, we encourage creativity and organise up to 20 different activities a week to facilitate this.
This week, as it was International Jazz Day, we hosted a day in our project to celebrate the creation and enjoyment of music.
Our clients were asked their favourite song choice or musical memory, which were played throughout the project all morning. With the choices ranging from Robbie Williams to Ave Maria, lack of variety was never lacking.
Our first Sleep Out of 2014 saw 50 fundraisers join us for a night outside the Cathedral.
The Sleep Out was a huge success and we were overwhelmed by the support, motivation and enthusiasm of everyone who took part – thank you so much.
The night began with a tour of the Cathedral Archer Project and a chance to learn all about our work changing the lives of homeless adults.
This is a unique experience of sleeping out in the centre of Sheffield. Are you up to the challenge?
On the night, you will gain a small insight into sleeping rough. Everyone that takes part learns something new and has a bit of experience of what it is like to be sleeping on the streets just for one night.
You will also learn about the work we are doing to help homeless adults in Sheffield. We ask that everyone taking part aims to raise at least £100 in sponsorship for the Cathedral Archer Project.
The clay modelling workshop at the Cathedral Archer Project has been running since around Christmas time. Although (as the title would suggest) the majority of work being produced are Clay objects the sessions are about much more. It’s not the work we produce that defines its purpose, the magic is in the happening of the session. The sessions are motivated by group interaction that brings with it an extraordinary dynamism, instigating imaginative work that is full of character. Responding to this environment makes for an exciting and unpredictable place to be.
