I’m delighted that Sheffield people have donated £3,000 to local homeless charities through my Christmas Appeal.
The Cathedral Archer Project gives homeless people a space where they can change their lives for the better, and Roundabout provides shelter, support and life skills to young people aged 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
In Parliament I’ll keep pressing for policies that tackle rough sleeping, but practical action is needed now and these great local charities provide it. I’m so pleased that my Christmas Appeal raised so much money and want to thank everyone who donated.
