• Office Friendly walkathon supports Sheffield charities

        • A team of 10 volunteers from the Office Friendly cooperative took part in a 6-mile fundraising walkathon to support two charities in Sheffield.

          The first stop along the route was with the founders of The Well Community Allotment Group. This project was set up two years ago by brothers, Rob and Tchad Western, to help young people connect with nature by seeing sustainable agriculture in action.

          Office Friendly’s second destination was at the City of Sanctuary, a support centre which helps change the lives of destitute asylum seekers. Here the team helped to renovate the building with a fresh lick of paint, before returning to their base to complete the 6-mile hike.

          Jan Thompson, Centre Manager at City of Sanctuary said, “it was so helpful to have a team come in and help us with the decorating and it definitely took some of the pressure off our team. The volunteers were friendly and did a great job, they quickly got on with the job in hand and even cleaned up afterwards.”

          The initiative, which was supported by partners, South Yorkshire Community Foundation (SYCF), doubled up as a fundraiser. The walkathon was supported by Office Friendly’s socially-charged community, and funds raised will go back into the local community to help young people in need.

          Adam Anson, Chief Organiser and Marketing Manager at Office Friendly said, “it’s amazing to see the group, our members, and the wider community come together to support such worthy causes. As a cooperative, we feel energised by the positive impact we can have. It just goes to show how much we can achieve when we all come together with a sense of purpose. This is really just the start.”

          Sonia Bielaszewska, Philanthropy Development & Research Officer at SYCF added, “through our partnership with Office Friendly, it has been fantastic to support them with their fundraising activities. The Office Friendly team are so motivated to raise money for the local region alongside SYCF and we can’t wait to see what they get up to next.”
