A Big Thank You To Hope and Dignity Hearth

Published on 15 June 2020 01:54 PM

We wanted to say a huge thank you to Hope and Dignity Hearth group who have been helping our Gift a Smile campaign. Hope & Dignity Hearth (HanD) is a non-profit making community group, offering wellbeing support to asylum seekers, refugees, immigrants and other marginalised communities. HanD serves a diverse range of many sub-Saharan African individuals and families, who have experienced trauma and are at risk of (or are already) experiencing PTSD or other mental health difficulties.

This amazing group have been sewing some lovely red material bags that residents can store used tissues in to prevent germs spreading within care home environments. We have been including them in our Gift a Smile deliveries.

Thank you so much to Gogo and the wonderful team at Hope and Dignity Hearth for their help and support with our campaign and for helping to keep older people across Sheffield safe.The group are based at St Mary's Cathedral in Sheffield. You can find out more about the HanD Group by clicking here.
