Welcome To St Vincents Furniture Store, Sheffield
Here to help the vulnerable and those coming out of homelessness in Sheffield
“Let us do whatever good lies in our hands”
On Wednesday 8th June, St Vincent’s Furniture Store held a Celebration afternoon for it’s volunteers. This was to coincide with National Volunteer Week, which took place between 1st June and 12th June 2016.
There are 30 volunteers working at the Store and in the words of the Store’s Manager, Lorraine Healy,
“We couldn’t function without our volunteers. They are such an integral part of what we do and the help we give to people. Without them, the Store could not exist, they keep it going and the staff and myself and so grateful to them for the time and energy they give”.
There was a buffet followed by an Awards Ceremony, with each volunteer receiving a recognition certificate. A great afternoon was had by all.
St Vincent’s Furniture Store was set up in 1987 and that means that 2017 will be our 30th year of helping those coming out of homelessness or experiencing some form of trauma in their lives.
Throughout our 30 years we have assisted thousands of people throughout Sheffield. The help we have given them has ensured that they are able to get their lives back on track.
Watch out for details of our forthcoming 30th Anniversary Celebrations.
Congratulations and thank you to Father Andrew Browne, Marie Grant and Declan Healy on completing the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday 10th April 2016. For Father Andrew and Marie this was their 3rd run and for Declan’s his 1st. It was a beautiful day for the run and they all finished, what is, the toughest half marathon in the Country in personal best times. Thank you also to the people who came out and supported them along the route. Now the serious work begins, collecting all that hard earned sponsor money.
