Information about HARC 2020
New look HARC for 2020.
You won’t be surprised to hear that Homeless and Rootless at Christmas will have a much different look and feel, as a result of the pandemic, this year.
The project will still be based at the Archer Project in Sheffield Cathedral from Xmas day until New Years Day. With only groups of 6 people allowed to meet at any one time, our guests will be served with takeaway breakfast and lunch. "Meals on Wheels" will be delivered to more vulnerable guests in accommodation across the city and gift bags with a variety of treats and useful items will be given to our guests.
Volunteering for HARC 2020
The “new look” Homeless and Rootless at Christmas for 2020 will mean that our volunteers will be working in a different way. It will only be volunteers that have worked with us previously that will be offered a shift and we will be limiting volunteers to one shift each in the first instance. Volunteers will be in the kitchen preparing our carefully planned menu as well as drinks. We will also need help taking food and drink orders from guests and helping them with housing and any personal hygiene needs.
Volunteer recruitment for experienced volunteers only will open on October 10th.
Supporting HARC 2020
The “new look” Homeless and Rootless at Christmas needs money to make it happen at this difficult time. Many of our fundraising opportunities e.g. bag-packing at supermarkets, collecting at Christmas Markets, will no longer be able to take place.
