These youngsters enjoyed a dance at an annual community celebration thanks to a new scheme reusing unwanted gifts,

Richmond Activity Club was given a set of speakers for their Christmas party from initiative Sheffieldr.

The project – launched by Sheffield Futures – aims to help communities provide activities for young people.

Organisers are now appealing for people to donate their unwanted gifts – from canoes to tents and golf clubs to cameras – which can then be hired to groups.

Louise Wright, training and development worker at Sheffield Young Carers, said: “Without the Sheffieldr team it would not have been possible for our young carers to take part in their activities.”
