Our first charity this week is Grow...


Hello everyone,

In the last couple of weeks we have been able to give away £1000 to a number of charities. In this post we'd like to tell you about Grow...

Grow is a youth development charity that works with young people - some of whom are pictured above. Many of the young people they work with face mental health difficulties which often result in social isolation and lack of engagement in work or training prospects. Grow combines coaching with nature based  projects to help their trainees combat that social isolation, boost their wellbeing as well as develop their employability skills. You can find out more at

They plan on using their £1000 to support Grow Gardeners which is their 16 week paid work-based learning programme. Here trainees are paid a real living wage and work alongside professional gardeners as part of their horticultural business which services over 60 client gardens across Sheffield.

We can't thank you enough for your continued generosity. Please do keep nominating as we'd love to be able to give away even more to charities and good causes across our city.

Best wishes,

The Sheffield 1000 Team
