    Fundraising concert for SY Refugee Law & Justice

    3:00 pmSt Mark's Church, Broomhill, Broomfield Road, Sheffield S10 2SE
    You are warmly invited to a free choral concert with a difference. The Sheffield Chamber Choir will provide a menu of music, and the audience chooses what they sing before each course! There will be a wide variety of pieces to choose from, spanning the 16th to 21st centuries. 

    Entrance is free but there will be a collection for South Yorkshire Refugee Law and Justice. We are a locally run charity that helps refugees prepare their own fresh claims for protection. We provide people with support at their lowest point, when they cannot find a solicitor and may be destitute. Our work helps clients move their cases forward, to feel safer and put themselves in a position where they can apply for Home Office accommodation and subsistence. We also work closely with other organisations in Sheffield supporting people seeking asylum.
    We rely mainly on volunteers and try to keep costs low, but urgently need funds towards our rent, our vital part time coordinator and expenses that help clients prepare a good case (for example, the Home Office fee for a copy of their file).
    The concert begins at 3.00pm, followed by refreshments at 4.15pm.
