volunteers spent the day on a scavenger hunt across Sheffield city centre in an effort to help the homeless.

The Cathedral Archer Project, a day centre which supports homeless and vulnerable people in Sheffield, organised the event to boost its supplies, which it relies on to help about 50 people a day.

Many of the volunteers for the scavenge are former clients of the project.

Tracey Viner, fundraising manager, said: “Some of the customers have said we’ve helped and supported them and they want to help and support us.”

Asking for goods such as fruit and vegetables, toothbrushes and sleeping bags instead of change was the event’s twist.

Ms Viner said: “People are a lot more supportive of donating things than cash. The people of Sheffield are very generous.”
