Sheffield road workers help the homeless

Have your say

Staff from roads contractor Amey have vowed to help the homeless in Sheffield.

Employees will be taking part in a series of events for a new charity partnership with the Cathedral Archer Project, which supports and feeds more than 1,000 homeless and vulnerable people each year.

Rob Allen, business director at Amey, which delivers the highways improvement contract for Sheffield Council, said: “We are delighted to announce the Cathedral Archer Project will be our local charity for the next year.

“This inspirational charity provides much needed help for people who desperately need it, offering everything from hot meals and showers to the advice and mentoring they need to get their lives back on track.

“We hope our support will go some way to ensure they can keep up the good work.”

Plans for a sponsored sleep out and harvest collection form part of the project.

Tim Renshaw, chief executive of the Cathedral Archer Project, said: “We are delighted to be supported by Amey and we are enjoying working with their employees to support their fundraising.

“We will be focusing on volunteering opportunities which use the skills and expertise of Amey’s employees.”
