I hope you’re ok and first up I just wanted to say thank you for your support of The Sheffield 1000.
We set this charity up to try and help people in our city and we’ve had a great response over the first few weeks and we are now at the exciting stage of starting to give money away!
Thank you for your nominations and the first charity we gave £1000 to were Baby Basics.
Steve and I went to go and see Cat and the team this week and have a look around their charity which is a volunteer-led project aiming to support new mothers and families who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby.
They do an amazing job and the need is huge. Our £1000 is going towards buying some baby beds for the 50 or so families they currently have on their waiting list.
We’ll be giving out another £1000 next Friday so… tell your friends. We want to be at the stage of being able to do it every single week as soon as possible as there is so much need around at the moment. As soon as you sign up (LINK) you can start nominating good causes and charities in our city.
Thanks for your support.
