Westfield Health donates £10k to homeless charity.
A Sheffield charity that supports homeless and vulnerable people in the city has received £10,000 from Westfield Health.
We donated the sum to the Cathedral Archer Project (CAP), which provides a safe, warm and welcoming place for homeless people and helps them to develop their independence and improve their wellbeing.
CAP, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, provides access to hot food and showers, as well as important services including tailored one to one support and in-house nurse and dental clinics.
Tracy Viner, Marketing and Development Manager at CAP, said: “We are extremely grateful to Westfield Health for this generous donation. Thanks to this kind of support we’re able to continue to offer a welcoming place for more than 1,000 people a year, providing health and wellbeing support, social welfare and vital warmth and comfort.
“It costs us approximately £500,000 a year to deliver our services and donations of this kind really do go a very long way to ensuring we can continue to provide a place for homeless and vulnerable people from where we support them to make the changes towards a fulfilling and enjoyable life.”
The charity runs a programme of activities to help people learn new skills, enjoy different experiences and gain accreditation. There’s even a structured volunteer programme to help people to gain confidence and improve their employability.
The team works closely with individuals to help them become more stable, re-engage with society and make a fresh start.
Our Chairman Graham Moore said: “The Cathedral Archer Project is an extremely worthwhile cause. It does such a fantastic job helping homeless and vulnerable people in the city, providing vital support when they need it most. We’re so pleased to be able to help the charity to continue its great work.”
