A BUILDING society celebrated the opening of new premises in Sheffield by making a donation to a charity which helps homeless people move into their own accommodation.

The Nottingham Building Society branch in Barker’s Pool was launched by Coun Sylvia Dunkley, Lord Mayor of Sheffield.

As part of the opening, society representatives handed a cheque for £1,250 to the St Vincent de Paul Furniture Store, Queens Road, Highfield, Sheffield, to help support its work.

Ralph Dickins, of St Vincent’s, which is marking its 25th anniversary this year, said: “The store opened in 1987, to provide free donated furniture and household items to help people in coming out of homelessness.

“Today, the store helps on average 4,000 individuals and families in crisis each year, giving them another chance to rebuild their lives.”
