The Charities Claremont Supports
Charity - Action Duchenne
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately 1 in every 3,500 live male births. During 2016 we raised £4116.52
All year staff and colleagues were raising money in a number of different activities. Events included a Climb Up Snowdon, Rounders Tournament, 'Taste of Yorkshire' Evening and a pre-loved clothing sale.
Charity - St Luke's Hospice
During 2015 the staff at Claremont raised £3,330 for St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield - an incredible achievement. Events included a sponsored weight loss, cake sale, half marathon walk, football tournament and a fashion show.
The money raised helped St Luke’s Hospice care for people whose illnesses are no longer curable, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life during the final stages of their illness.
St Wilfrid's Centre for the Homeless, Vulnerable and Socially Excluded
Claremont is also delighted to support St Wilfrid's Day Centre for the homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded in Sheffield.
The Centre has developed through the years and is now one of the largest day centres in the north, offering more services under one roof than any other project. Their new 'Residential Project' is now complete on Queens Road in Sheffield.
In addition the Centre has educational classes that include literacy, numeracy, art, drama and cooking, and two large allotments where fruit and vegetables are grown to produce a daily three course meal. The skills workshop is famous locally and recently a gift shop has been opened selling goods made by the clients.
