  • Santa's Surprise and Our Thanks

    Santa's Surprise and Our Thanks

    Everyone loves a surprise in their Christmas stocking. Thanks to the crotchet and felting skills and kind efforts of our staff and volunteers we’ve been enclosing a little surprise Christmas tree decoration into our PPE deliveries. Your responses were very heartwarming to hear back, thank you. We’d also like to say thank you to our volunteer PPE delivery drivers who have made over 800 deliveries. Without their hard work hundreds of disabled people in Sheffield would be without PPE, and consequently without the vital care and support their PAs and carers provide. Thank you!

    Not bought your Christmas cards yet? Thinking of donating to charity instead of sending cards this year? Why not consider Disability Sheffield as your chosen charity? As our Vice Chair Natalie Yarrow explains “So many large national charities benefit from the generosity of donors at this time of year, with smaller local charities often being left out in the cold! I would like to invite you to join me in sharing a little Christmas cheer with our User-Led-Organisation.”

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
