SHSU's Think Care Help project highly commended at national volunteering awards!

Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union is excited to share the news that our Think Care Help volunteering project received a highly commended recognition at the National Societies and Volunteering Awards! (NSVAs)

The Think Care Help project was set up to raise awareness of homelessness in Sheffield and is run by Hallam students. The project works closely with Sheffield organisations that support homeless people and aims to help people out where possible through campaigns, events and fundraisers.

This year, the group have volunteered at the Sunday Centre, served breakfasts for a week at the Cathedral Archer project and held several fundraising events. Throughout the year, project leader Ellie Poxton, a Sheffield Hallam student, has done some fantastic work and has regularly volunteered at the Sunday Centre whilst supporting other local organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project was nominated in the ‘Extra Mile Award' category, which recognises an individual or organisation that has overcome significant challenges to volunteering or society involvement.

The awards took place online this year on Wednesday 6th May. Visit nsvawards.uk for more information.

Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union would like to say a huge well done to everyone who is involved in the Think Care Help project and Ellie for all your hard work this year!
