Hi to all our fantastic supporters,
As April has arrived with a hint of sunshine I am delighted to be able to let you know that this week one of our volunteers, Lucy, made it out to hand over the £1000 to the incredible South Yorkshire Easting Disorder Association (SYEDA) and spent time with the charities CEO, Chris Hood, to get to know a little more about how the charity works.
SYEDA was founded in 1996 and provides treatment across South Yorkshire for people living with an eating disorder. Treatment may include one to one therapy, support groups and occupational therapy. Alongside this SYEDA also offer support and provides information to friends and families.
The charity also deliver education and training sessions in schools, colleges, to professionals and the wider community.
Lucy said “It was an absolute privilege to be able to represent The Sheffield 1000 and hand over the £1000. Hearing first hand that the money will go directly into delivering therapy and provide support that is so crucial to people with Eating Disorders is fantastic”.
Thank you again for helping us give away another £1000 this week. Please do keep telling your friends and family about how to get involved – the more support we have the more charities we can help.
Dan and The Sheffield 1000 Team
