#2020challenge - We need you to help Nomad to rise to the challenges of 2020 and support the people of Sheffield.
We have provided key services in Sheffield for over 30 years - supporting people experiencing homelessness into safe and secure accommodation.
Each year we house over 70 people who have nowhere else to turn. People who come to us while they are currently street homeless, sofa surfing or sleeping in tents and cars.
We believe that everyone has the right to live in safe and secure accommodation. Especially in these unprecedented and very difficult times.
Our service is now needed more than ever.
As we continue to house people through the pandemic, we want to ensure we are equipped to provide the best service possible to people who need it.
Despite the UK lockdown, our staff continued to work from home and the office, committing to key worker roles in the community.
We ensured people who needed accommodation could access it quickly, easily and safely.
We have risen to the challenges that 2020 has thrown our way and continue to support the people of Sheffield.
Will you rise to your 2020 Challenge and support us?
To help us to continue to rise to the challenges of 2020, we are asking you to complete a fundraising challenge to help us raise vital funds.
Using the numbers 2 and 0 we want you to set yourself a challenge, create a fundraiser, and complete it on behalf of Nomad.
Then challenge a friend, a family member, or a colleague to do the same.
The money raised will go to Nomad and help to reinforce our services, which are desperately needed so that people have somewhere safe to live.
Here is some inspiration for you to come up with your own fundraiser and help us.
Get active and complete a challenge which you might never have done before. Travel a specific distance by walking, running, cycling or swimming.
Get crafty and build, make, bake or create something.
Get creative and come up with your own ideas for a challenge and do something you have never done before such as a sponsored dance-athon, sing-along or silence.
Once you’ve completed your 2020 Challenge, remember to nominate one or more people to do the same.
Remember to complete your challenge by the 14th of October 2020!
We would love to hear about the challenges that you are taking on - keep us up to date by using the hashtag #2020challenge and tagging us on social media @nomadsheffield.
