We are delighted to let all our supporters know we were able to give £1000 to another great charity this week.
We had the pleasure of meeting Ursula who founded the ADIRA charity in 2012, along with two of the charities Board members Tracy and Karen.
ADIRA are based on the Wicker in Sheffield and provide black people of all ages, who have experienced mental health problems, with a safe, friendly and culturally sensitive meeting space. It is here where anyone needing support is offered information and advice along with social and leisure activities.
On the 6th December 2022 they launched a Self-care hub where anyone referred to ADIRA will be provided with free and low-cost cleaning essentials, skin and hair care products for men and women with a focus on culturally appropriate skin and hair care products for people of Africa-Caribbean heritage.
It is fantastic to know some of the £1000 will go towards vital items needed to keep the self-care hub running.
It was a privilege to meet the ADIRA team and get a real sense of how everyone works together to support the community. For anyone interested or knows someone who might be – they are running a mental health meeting at St Marys Church on Bramall Lane on 15th April 2023.
Thank you again for all your support - keep your eyes peeled for where your kind donations will go next week.
Best wishes for a great week!
Dan & The Sheffield 1000 Team
