About Cathedral Archer Project
AIMS: To help homeless people achieve a better life by supporting them to:
- Develop their independence
- Improve their ability to tackle setbacks
- Improve their ability to identify and change negative behaviour
- Improve their wellbeing
For our Harvest Festival, children were asked to bring in food and toiletries which had been requested by the project. As you can see from the pictures, everyone's generosity was overwhelming and filled an entire minibus!
In our Harvest Festival Service we thought about where in the World all our food comes from. We discovered that the ingredients for the pizza that is delivered from 'just around the corner' has in fact flown an incredible distance of 23,000 miles around the world.
Thank you to everyone who donated food. This food goes to the Cathedral Archer Project - a safe, warm and welcoming place for the homeless and vulnerable in Sheffield.
2017 - Thank you once again for everyone's generosity. As a school we held a wonderful harvest festival where all year groups sang songs, performed readings/poems to appreciate all the things we have in our lives. Afterwards representatives from the Archer Project gratefully picked up a wealth of much needed donations made by our school community.
Following on from this, two representatives have visited us at school to say 'thank you' on behalf of the project and to tell us all in an assembly about the work they do and how much our donations have helped.
