Financial help was on offer for a Sheffield charity to help its work with deprived and vulnerable residents.

The Nottingham building society, which has branches in Barker’s Pool and at Firth Park, made a £4,525 donation to a financial project run by the St Vincent’s Furniture Store.

The furniture store collects and recycles an average of 300 to 400 tons of furniture and household items a year - but the money will help it expand into a new service.

Ralph Dickens, from St Vincent’s, said: “It will fund our Money Matters Outreach project, a free and confidential one-to-one help and support service.

“Services will include money management education, budgeting, debt remedy tools as well as benefits search information.

“The aim of Money Matters Outreach is to provide personal budget coaches to help and support homeless and vulnerable people in the area.”

Tricia Cater, manager of The Nottingham’s Barker’s Pool branch, said: “We are delighted to be helping St Vincent’s with the invaluable work they do. Money Matters will provide much-needed support.”
