A message from our Chaplain…
Our President’s husband, Geoff decided to have a ‘little’ bike ride in the conservatory during the month of May. He wanted to raise money for Wath Salvation Army Foodbank and also Sheffield Diocese Mothers’ Union. His target was the distance from Lands End to John O’ Groats : 1407 kilometres. He cycled every morning, usually from 8.30, for about 60 kilometres. He finally ‘arrived’ at John O’ Groats at 12 noon on Friday 22nd May. His crowdfunder page is: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/geoffsletjogbybikemay2020 has received donations to the total of £1,374 to date. This project will receive all pledges up to 4th June. However, up to and after this date, donations can also be sent directly to Geoff. He has received £673 so far so the total is £2047 to share between the two causes.
An Update on the Fire at Sheffield Cathedral- May 19th
At the moment the best way to help is through sharing and supporting our appeal:https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/fireappeal2020
The damage in our building is localised and a team of our trustees and volunteers came and scrubbed the centre down on Saturday, which has transformed it. We are just waiting to sort the water supply and then we should be operational again, so at the moment we are not in need of volunteer help. The room that was mainly damaged was also the storage for our clothes so until we come up with a storage solution we cannot accept new donations – but this is something we are working on and will announce on our website as soon as we can take donations of items again.
