The nave of Sheffield’s Anglican Cathedral will be the unlikely venue for this year’s Sheffield Chamber of Commerce President’s Dinner.
The dinner, which takes place in the 600 year old building on Thursday May 12, will raise funds for the Cathedral Archer Project.
Chamber president, Yuri Matischen, said: “An event of this type has never taken place at the Cathedral before and we hope all Chamber members will look to be a part of the night. The removal of the majority of the pews is also another major first for the Cathedral. The dinner will also provide an opportunity to help raise funds for a very worth charity.
“The Cathedral Archer Project celebrates its 21st anniversary this year and is the only centre of its kind in the heart of Sheffield.”
The Chamber will also announce its Charity of the Year for 2011 at its President’s Dinner.
n The Cathedral Archer Project helps the homeless and vulnerable in Sheffield.
It serves more than 10,500 hot breakfasts and more than 4,000 hot meals a year and provides other support for homeless people, including rough sleepers, drug and alcohol dependents.
