Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind


Hello again!

In the last few days we have been able to donate another £1000 to the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind. We sent one of our lovely trustees Steve Manley to visit them at their premises on Mappin Street. He met with their CEO, Joanne Arden (pictured above), and their Fundraising Manager Steve Loane, and enjoyed hearing about the amazing work they do to help the blind and partially sighted community.

Established in th 1860, the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind (SRSB) has been serving the visually impaired community for nearly 164 years. Along with their division Rotherham Sight and Sound (RSS) they offer support, friendship and services to blind and partially sighted people in Sheffield and people with sight and/or hearing loss in Rotherham. Their services include community outreach, benefits assistance, emotional support, specialist equipment, activity packs, children's services and sports/social activities. They are currently helping over 7000 clients. You can find out more about their work at

They will use our donation to help fund 16 weeks of their Winter Warmers (soup,roll and a drink) and cream teas. They provide these free for up to 20 clients a week to help with the cost of living crisis.

Thank you so much for your continued support and I hope you can see how your generous giving is helping so many people who really need it. Please keep your eye out for further updates on donations - we have a few lined up for the next few weeks... And please do also feel free to invite your friends, colleagues and family to join The Sheffield 1000.

Thanks again.

Dan and The Sheffield 1000 Team.
