Sheffield Chamber of Commerce made a visit to the city’s Cathedral armed with a giant cheque.

The Chamber handed over £4,354.60 to the Cathedral Archer Project following this year’s President’s Dinner which took place at the Cathedral in May.

The dinner was held in the main body of the Cathedral for the first ever time, attracting more than 300 guests, including a host of the region’s dignitaries and well known names in business, along with guest speaker Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.

The Cathedral Archer Project is a day centre which supports the homeless and vulnerable in Sheffield. Founded in 1990 as a breakfast service, it now runs as a full day centre providing food, health care, and support for its clients to move towards a stable lifestyle.

President of the Chamber Yuri Matischen also helped to serve breakfast to members of the Archer Project during his visit to the Cathedral.

He said: “It was great to be able to present the cheque to such a fantastic charity in our city. Thanks has to go to all those who booked tickets for the event and donated on the night. Everyone will agree it was a truly special evening in a fantastic venue and one which will be remembered for a long time.”
