See what’s been happening at the Cathedral Archer Project.
An exhibition titled 'Beyond Street View' has been created by our photography group and will offer visitors unfamiliar perspectives on Sheffield’s people, buildings, streets and open spaces.
'Beyond Street View', a creative arts project led by national education charity The Open College of the Arts (OCA), was commissioned earlier this year as part of the city’s Off the Shelf Festival of Words.
This year is our second anniversary of Breakfast Club where businesses pay for a week of breakfasts at the project and then come in to serve it so they see first hand where their support is going.
We currently have 15 members who to date have donated a fantastic £19,034 to the project. This is the equivalent of over 4000 breakfasts- which is amazing! Thank you so much, you're making such a difference to the lives of people with very little.
Unify Business Solutions are the latest business to join.
For Eddie Bird and Adam Esposito, Joint Managing Directors of Unify Business Solutions, the charity was one close to their hearts.
"We were all very keen to help out the Archer Project. Our work in the prison system meant we saw first-hand the struggles that many people find on the street and how many people fall into a cycle of street life and crime. The Archer Project works with people to keep them off the streets, offering support, educational and volunteering opportunities. ”
If your business would like to join the club then please email Ruby for more information on email@example.com
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
