SHEFFIELD Chamber of Commerce has handed over a cheque for almost £4,360 to the Cathedral Archer Project, as a result of the Anglican Cathedral hosting this year’s Chamber President’s Dinner.

More than 300 guests, including Paralympian Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, attended the dinner which was held in the main body of the Cathedral for the first time ever.

Chamber president, Yuri Matischen, 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.”

The Cathedral Archer Project is a day centre which supports the homeless and vulnerable in Sheffield and runs as a full day centre providing food, health care, and support to help clients to move towards a stable lifestyle.

Mr Matischen helped to serve breakfast to members of the Archer Project during a visit to the Cathedral.
