See what’s been happening at the Cathedral Archer Project.
We are pleased to announce that Event Management Direct has chosen to host its annual EMD Charity Dinner in aid of the Cathedral Archer Project. Event Management Direct (EMD) is a Sheffield based event management service specialising in the medical sector. Founded in 2010, EMD has quickly established a national reputation for both the quality of its service and the value for money it offers.
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.”
To support the team, please sponsor them at: https://www.givey.com/runworks. And good luck from us all!
Recently we have been working alongside a brilliant organisation called Keychanges. Keychanges is a Sheffield based organisation designed to support and tackle social barriers for women who have experienced the criminal justice system and those at risk of offending. They work to both support the women and to create equal opportunities for them.
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 email@example.com.
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.
