Sheffield is often named as Britain’s friendliest city, but did you know ‘Sheffielders’ are also generous?
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the charity sector has been hit hard these past few years, with so many seeing donations and funding disappear almost overnight as lockdown was enforced and events were cancelled. At the same time, however, charities have also come under increased pressure for their services due to more people turning up seeking their support.
Investors In Community have, however, seen great generosity amongst those in Sheffield region on the platform, with recent donations taking the total to £22,000 shared across the charities and community projects.
Here are the categories of charities Sheffield has supported:
Not only were these direct donations to charities, but some also involved extreme challenges such as a 100km Challenge, an 80ft Abseil and a 360-mile running challenge. Showing that those in Sheffield are not only generous but courageous too.
Philip Webb, Managing Director of Investors in Community, comments:
“These past few years have brought a huge number of challenges for people across the world with so many events cancelled, and fundraising opportunities limited, so we are delighted to see such an incredible amount raised for charities in the Sheffield region. We hope to continue to see this number grow and be matched across all cities in the UK.”
We are so grateful to everyone who’s generously supported charities via the Investors In Community Platform, but there’s still more that can be done. To donate to a good cause today, visit www.investorsincommunity.org
