Next week, from the 12 -16 May 2014, Lightworks is sponsoring the Cathedral Archer Project (CAP) Breakfast Club; our sponsorship will provide a week’s worth of breakfasts to those that use the centre. The Lightworks’ team will help to serve breakfast throughout the week, with two different staff members volunteering each day.
We’re one of the first businesses in Sheffield to sponsor this fantastic Breakfast Club scheme; on average, 50 homeless adults benefit from a hot breakfast every day, as well as all the other key services that CAP offer, including medical treatment and education.
Tim Renshaw, the CEO of the CAP said, ‘We are delighted to welcome Lightworks as members of our Breakfast Club and have this opportunity to thank them for all their support this year. As well as all their fundraising activities, they will be coming in to serve breakfast. Lightworks are a great example of how you can get involved with a local charity and make a huge impact. They will be helping us to support our clients to change their lives.’
The CAP centre costs around £2,100 per day to run, so every donation helps. So far this year our team of four runners raised money for the project by completing the Sheffield Half Marathon, but our efforts don’t stop there. On 7th June 2014, another four members of our team will be completing the gruelling Ben Nevis charity challenge; they’ll climb Ben Nevis, cycle 25 miles and then canoe across Loch Lochy.
David Forrester, Chief Executive Officer at Lightworks said; ‘The Team and I look forward to volunteering at the Breakfast Club next week; it will be good to meet those that benefit from CAP’s hard work and our donations. We hope to break our fundraising targets in our 25th year, so we’ve decided to undertake our most physically-challenging charity challenge to-date, the Ben Nevis Challenge 2014. I’m pleased to say that training is going well, but it’s definitely going to be tough. Any donations to spur us on will be greatly appreciated by our team and those that benefit from CAP’s support.’
