Well done to the wonderful team from STC Sheffield who gave up a day to help an elderly lady whose lounge needed transforming. It was a pleasure to work with them and it was great to see how they worked with such care and compassion for the recipient. Thanks especially to Chris for organising the day.
Part of the wonderful Just Love, Sheffield recovering a much neglected garden. The pleasant surprise was the next door neighbour who gave us chairs, a coffee table and hot drinks at lunchtime. As always we are blessed in ways we never expect. Thank you Lord.
One of our wonderful regular givers paid for six toasters and a kettle and asked us to pick them up from a local Woodseats electrial store. When we arrived to collect them the company had matched the toasters so we were able to collect twelve. Thank you Lord.
Yes it is that time of year again when people demonstrate how generous they can be to those less fortunate than themselves. Please go to our Christmas page to download a leaflet then please get in touch to let us know whether your hamper is for a family or single person so that we can match your hamper to the right recipients. We look forward to hearing from you.
Helping someone when they really need it and building relationships with some of the team from The Besom in Sheffield is priceless. What a day of fun we had and were useful at the same time.
It’s great to welcome back Brian, our longest serving timegiver, who has been off for a few months with a broken hand. It’s good to see him serving once again.
We are very grateful for the giver who gave us money with the specific request to buy white goods on their behalf for people in need. We were able to purchase two fridges, eight microwaves, eight toasters and eight kettles. We are looking forward to letting the giver know how their money has been spent. They will really bless many people in Sheffield who are setting up home for the first time.
We pray for many things. Sometimes its for ‘time’ to match church groups with project referrals. Sometimes its for ‘things’ to match items offered such as good quality furniture to referrals but rarely do we pray for money. However God always knows what the need is. Recently we were praying for washers, cookers and fridge freezers, which we received but as well received around £1500 with the request to buy ‘white goods’ with it. Thank you Lord.
Thank you so much for providing for the family. Our staff were completely overwhelmed by the Besom and the generosity of people. Two of the staff told me they were reduced to tears on Friday by your kindness after a very difficult week. Thank you for being such a blessing.
How gorgeous do some of our Thursday crew look sporting their new Christmas masks. The Thursday crew sort, clean and pack smaller household items such as pots, pans, cutlery, bedding and curtains and deliver them as well. They are also really looking forward to delivering the Christmas hampers which will go out in the next few weeks.
