Our 'Sponsor a room' campaign aimed to raise the £8,500 we need to fund our accommodation services throughout next winter
This amount will cover the cost of bills such as gas and electricity. But more importantly it will ensure that refused asylum seekers in Sheffield have a safe, warm and welcoming place to sleep, whatever the winter throws at us.
Progress so far
The campaign comes to an end this week! Thank you so much to everyone who's contributed and followed along. It's been a huge effort, but the results are well worth it. We haven't quite made it to our target, but we are so proud to have raised £5636. That's countless asylum seekers off the streets and in the warm. We can't thank you enough.
The success of ASSIST relies on donations from our incredible supporters. We are so grateful for all the support we have received since we began in 2003. Just last year we were able to accommodate 110 people!
