Anonymous donor awards £3,000 boost to city charity

Have your say

A Sheffield homelessness charity has been boosted by a £3,000 donation - by an anonymous benefactor.

Emmaus - a working community of accommodation and training facilities for men and women - is planning a major extension project to its Sipelia Works base in the Canal Basin. The centre currently has space for 14 ‘companions’ but work has begun on a £200,000 project to create four further en-suite rooms.

Manager Graham Bostock said: “We were absolutely delighted by a £3,000 donation from a supporter who wishes to remain anonymous - every penny really does count now.”
