Charity of the Month:

Every month we support a different Charity. Our charity for November is "Homeless and Rootless at Christmas - HARC".


Homeless and Rootless at Christmas

HARC has been providing a safe and warm day shelter in Sheffield for homeless, rootless and vulnerable men and women between Christmas and New Year since 1989.

HARC provides three free hot meals a day and guests are welcome to spend the entire day, helping all to get through what can be a very cold and lonnely time of Year.

This year, the project will be open from Sunday 24th December 2017 to Monday 1st January 2018 (cloing at noon).
