A Sheffield charity is a step nearer its dream of a £1.8 million centre for the homeless – thanks to a night at the dogs.
Owlerton Greyhound Stadium helped St Wilfrid’s, a day centre for homeless and vulnerable people on Queens Road on Lowfield, to raise more than £3,000 by hosting a race night.
Staff and supporters of St Wilfrid’s enjoyed a meal at the stadium, as well as charity raffle and auction, which raised a total of £3,067.
Kevin Bradley, centre director, said: “We had a fantastic time at the race night and, importantly, raised a significant total towards St Wilfrid’s Residential appeal.
John Gilburn, stadium managing director, said: “We are proud to support such a fantastic local charity.
“The day centre is an incredibly inspiring place and a vital service for many people of all ages.”
