Fantastic things are happening in North Sheffield
Can you sing, dance, tell a joke or recite a poem? If so, your talents could be put to good use on Friday 12th May at Sacred Heart parish hall in Hillsborough. Fr. Shaun Smith is calling for performers of all ages to help stage a variety show to raise funds for the people of Puentecitos in El Salvador.
If you’ve yet to discover your hidden talent, then you’d be very welcome to come and appreciate other people’s. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets cost £5 for adult and £1 for children with family tickets available for a bargain price of £10. You can find Sacred Heart on Forbes Road, S6 2NU with easy parking nearby in Morrisons at Hillsborough Barracks.
This Harvest, Hallam volunteers are going into schools asking young people to Brighten Up to help to build a brighter future for young people living in fear of violence. Violence is making life harder for the world’s poorest people. CAFOD partners are helping these people to live without fear, by creating safe spaces where they are free to be with their friends and help to build a more peaceful world.
Hallam volunteers have been in 13 schools over 2-3 weeks giving assemblies on the Brighten Up theme that saw the children making ‘peace pies’ and ‘conflict cakes’. This was to highlight that people who live in the poorest communities are faced with the threat of conflict.
