Tenth anniversary

2016 also marks the tenth anniversary of Sanctuary managing homes in Shiregreen, with the awards ceremony on 26 February 2016 commencing a year of activity celebrating the successes of the last decade. The glittering celebration will be attended by Harry Harpham, MP for Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough.

Colleen Eccles, Sanctuary’s director of neighbourhoods, commented: “Sanctuary’s fifth annual Awards in Shiregreen will be a fantastic opportunity for us to say thank you to our partners and residents, who continue to develop new and creative ideas for Shiregreen.

“I would also like to thank our kind sponsors for their contributions.”
