Golddigger Trust Centre For Young People - Summer 2016
Thank you for helping us to get here!
Over the last 11 years, we have worked with thousands of young people who have seen real change in their lives, but we are acutely aware that there are thousands more who need our help. As the Trust has grown, we have long held a vision for creating our own ‘centre for young people’, somewhere that they can feel at home, and from where our award winning work can expand across the city and the UK.
Our need to find a new space for Golddigger Trust’s work to be based coincided with an incredible opportunity for us to step out and create a new long term home for our work here in Sheffield. We are so excited about the possibilities that this new building will give us in reaching hundreds more young people, both here in Sheffield and across the UK.
At over 200 years old, 10 Psalter Lane is a 3-storey property that will provide around 2500 sq ft of space dedicated to supporting young people, creating a new chapter in its history and ours. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to partner with the Salvation Army, who alongside owning the property, have their purpose built centre next door, providing us with excellent facilities for hosting larger youth events and training conferences throughout the year.
Could you support us regularly?
To make this dream a reality, we need your help. In order to open and run the ‘Golddigger Trust Centre For Young People’, we need to raise an additional £500 per month in regular giving. We need faithful people, like you and me, to stand with Golddigger Trust, committing to give £10, £20, £50 per month to see lives transformed in this building. This regular support will support Golddigger Trust’s ongoing work, including helping us to pay the rent and keep the lights on!
Could you be one of these heroes who stands with us on a monthly basis? Please sign up now to become a regular supporter and change lives.
Could you make a one off donation?
Perhaps you’re not able to give regularly at the moment, but you’d like to give a one off gift towards our refurbishment costs as we make this old office building into a home from home? We need to raise around £12,000 and we’d be delighted if you could give financially towards buying new furniture, paint and much more.
Could you get involved practically?
Over the summer of 2016 this Centre has been full of kind volunteers who have stripped the walls, plastered, painted and papered, cleaned and decorated, filling the spaces with generous gifts from supporters, friends, strangers and businesses. Could you get involved to help us to keep this a cared for and lovely space?
• Volunteer on a weekly/monthly basis? As the Centre begins to be full of the hustle and bustle of young people from September, we are looking for a small group of wonderful volunteers who will take responsibility for keeping on top of our small (but perfectly formed!) garden spaces, and/or forming a cleaning rota for our communal ‘youth space’ rooms. Maybe you could offer to do some hoovering or grass cutting once a month? Please get in touch by emailing us.
We hope you are as excited as we are to see this dream come to life... thank you for playing your part! Your support really does makes a real difference to young people across Sheffield and the UK. If you'd like to get further involved, or wish to make a donation by cheque, please do get in touch and we'd be delighted to speak with you!
