Maria Adcock and Jonners Baker (Revive Cafe) with Naomi (Loadhog)
The sales and marketing coordinator at Loadhog, Sheffield’s transit packaging innovator, has given up many of her Saturday lunchtimes to help out at a community café serving the city’s vulnerable, and this time she handed over a £1,200 donation from her employer. Naomi Jones has been making a ‘hands on’ contribution for some time, then Loadhog decided the Revive Café was in need of funds to continue its valuable work of providing food and hospitality to the homeless and marginalised in Sheffield.
Based in the Archer Project in the heart of Sheffield city centre, the Revive Café is open on Saturday lunchtimes to provide tasty and nourishing food as well as friendly company and a listening ear. Supported by a team of enthusiastic and loyal volunteers, the café’s organisers are Maria Adcock and Jonners Baker who were delighted with Loadhog’s contribution.
Maria Adcock said: “We believe that sharing a warm meal helps to break down conventional barriers and create a community. Our guests come back time and again for the friendship as well as the food. “We thank Loadhog for its kind donation which will enable us to run for a further six months, which is just incredible, thank you again.”
On the day that Naomi presented Loadhog’s cheque to the Revive Café, there was a record number of service users through the door, which shows that awareness of Revive Café is growing and becoming an increasingly popular place, not only to be fed, but also to chat with people who will listen.
