A foot in the right direction for homeless people in Sheffield

20th June 2016

Put your best foot forward and help stamp out homelessness in Sheffield.

On Saturday 15th October The Cathedral Archer Project are hosting a sponsored 5 mile walk called 'Walk In My Shoes' to raise funds to help with their work in assisting people out of homelessness and they want your help! -The people we support tell us they spend a lot of their days walking, whether around the town centre or further afield. We often come across tired people and even more tired feet Tim, CEO of the Archer Project says, -Walk In My Shoes is an opportunity for people in Sheffield to come together and get a glimpse of what life is like in a homeless person's shoes, of course in a more light hearted way! The Cathedral Archer Project is a safe place for homeless adults where people are treated with respect and given the opportunity to change their lives. The Archer Project helps homeless adults achieve a better life through 1:1 support, volunteering opportunities and activities. They also provide crisis support such as access to a nurse and dentist, showers, laundry and hot meals. Sheffield Go Outdoors is stepping in as a sponsor for the walk. Ian Mackintosh says they were keen to be involved, -We help people enjoy the outdoors and its challenges but homelessness means vulnerable people are forced to survive against extreme conditions with little to help them. We want to make a difference to those on the street and their lives and were keen to be involved in this event which will benefit a local homeless project The walk starts in Endcliffe Park at 11am and will do a circular 5 mile route up the Porter Valley and finish back in the park, with a finishers' pack and refreshments supplied. You can register for the event via the Archer Project's events calendar found on their website (http://www.archerproject.org.uk/) and download a sponsor form there.
