Sheffield Mutual Friendly Society, a local mutual provider of savings and investment policies for adults and children, has announced the winners of their 2018 Charity Award.
Earlier this year the Society let their members and the general public nominate Yorkshire based charities. The nominations were short listed down to the final 10 by the Committee of Management and then put to the public vote back in March.
The final 10 charities were: Candlelighters, DSWESTPENNINE, Epilepsy Action, Headway Sheffield, Leukaemia Care, Rotherham Federation of Communities, Sheffield Churches Council for Community Care, Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind, Second Thoughts and last but not least The Cathedral Archer Project.
Voting closed on 31st July 2018 and the winners have been announced as follows:
1. The Cathedral Archer Project - £5,000
2. Sheffield Churches Council for Community Care - £1,500
3. Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind - £1,000
Business Development Manager Dawn Gregory would like thank the 10 charities who took part and to everyone that got involved, nominated a charity or voted. She said “I’ll be visiting the successful charities over the coming weeks, to see how they are putting the money to good use. Please keep checking our blog for updates (www.sheffieldmutual.com/blog). As a mutual we like to give something back to the community, so it is fantastic to be able to help some of the smaller Yorkshire based charities and I can’t wait to see the difference the awards will make to peoples’ lives.”
