Church Charity Achievements 2019

Each year Stephen Hill Methodist Church chooses to support two charities.

Over the last 12 months, up to the end of August 2019, members of the Stephen Hill
Methodist Church managed to hand over cheques of £1,447 to both the “McMillan Cancer Care” and “Sheffield Support Dogs”, from the proceeds of regular coffee mornings.

Since then, as well as the money raised from these coffee mornings, they had extra events and a 90th birthday party, which raised a further £1030.00 for the “Macmillan Cancer Support“, bringing this year’s total for this charity to £2477.00.
In addition, a further £1421.10 raised from a folk evening, a concert with The Rock Choir and a sales morning, brought the total amount raised for the “Sheffield Support Dogs” charity to a total of £2,868.10.

These extra activities amounted to their two chosen charities receiving a staggering grand total of £5345.10.

Not content with their past achievements, Stephen Hill Church has now started fundraising for next year’s two charities, Alzheimer’s UK and the Sheffield City of Sanctuary on Chapel Walk, supporting asylum seekers and refugees.

Santa in Crosspool

Santa's sleighAfter successfully raising £1,400 for local charities last year, volunteers at Hallamshire Round Table and Riverdale Round Table arranged with Santa for Crosspool to be one of the two routes he would visit before starting his amazing journey delivering Christmas gifts around the world.

The Hallamshire Round Table and Riverdale Round Table are now busy counting up the kind donations collected along the way in support of St Luke’s Hospice, Bluebell Wood Hospice, and Cavendish Cancer Care.

Christmas Bin Collections 2019

Waste and recycling collection dates over the Christmas Period

Before you put your black, blue and brown bins out over Christmas, check what day Veolia will be coming to empty them – as it might be different over the festive period.

Christmas bin collections

Extra Waste and Recycling

Over the festive period, it is likely that you will produce lots of extra waste, including wrapping paper, Christmas cards, boxes, catalogues, glass and plastic bottles, biscuit/chocolate tins and lots more.

You can place small amounts of extra paper and card, tied in a bundle no bigger than your bin, next to your blue bin for collection.

Between 27th December and 23rd January ONLY they will collect extra tins, cans, and plastic bottles. Just put them inside a tied carrier bag next to your brown bin.
Any glass bottles or jars must be placed inside your brown bin; otherwise, your extra recycling will not be collected.
