Sheffield charities benefit from Children in Need fund

Two projects working with disadvantaged children and young people in Sheffield have been awarded £192,345 through the BBC’s Children in Need fund.

Roundabout, which works with homeless young people, has received £74,352 and £117,993 has been awarded to The Sheena Amos Youth Trust - an independent group working young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

The cash will last three years.

Elizabeth Myers, BBC Children in Need’s Regional Manager for the North, said: “We are delighted to be awarding funding to these projects, which will go on to make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the area.

“The support we get each year is staggering and everyone should feel proud of what they have made possible.”
