On Tuesday 23rd January, The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire hosted a presentation for several regional charities that have received support from the Cutlers’ Combined Charitable Trust (CCCT). The Master and Mistress Cutler, Charles and Sarah Turner, extended a warm welcome to the representatives of these charities that had made successful applications in November 2023, presenting them with the Company’s donations in support of their causes.
It is noteworthy that these services are delivered by volunteers within their communities, highlighting the dedication and compassion of local individuals. The charities provide a variety of support activities across the region, which was both humbling and heartwarming to hear. The CCCT provided financial support to over 60 Regional charities in 2023, showcasing a diverse range of support activities and commitment across South Yorkshire. The Cutlers’ Company has a strong history of supporting charitable causes in the region. This tradition continues through the Cutlers’ Combined Charitable Trust, which proudly upholds the company’s charitable legacy.
Some of the charities that received donations at this year’s first CCCT, included Adira, which is a survivor-led mental health & well-being organisation to support black people (of all ages) with mental health issues as well as organising events to raise awareness of issues that affect the black community. Grow is a youth development charity working with young people who face mental health difficulties in Sheffield, helping to combat social isolation, boost their wellbeing and develop their employability skills through nature-based projects. The St Wilfrid’s Centre is a day centre for the homeless, vulnerable or socially excluded adults in Sheffield, offering over 35 specialist sessions and activities a week, providing a hot meal daily and offering basic Welfare Services. South Yorkshire Charity Mentors support the region’s voluntary sector leaders, assist with voluntary sector sustainability, and post-pandemic recovery, helping to grow respective roles and strengthen their organisations.
