On Thursday 19th October, Roundabout celebrated its 40th birthday with an event at the Winter Garden in Sheffield, attended by over 100 guests!
Hosted by Paulette Edwards of BBC Radio Sheffield, the friends of Roundabout listened to a number of inspiring speeches, including Ben Keegan (Roundabout’s CEO) and the personal stories of a number of hostel residents, past and present. One of these young people, Sophie, aged 24, explained how Roundabout helped her get back on her feet and find full-time employment.
Supporters were given a sneak preview of an exciting event coming to Sheffield next year. The fundraising event, known as Bangers and Cash, is set to be the biggest fundraising event Roundabout has ever seen. The official launch will be in January 2018 and the event itself will take place next summer. Watch this space…
Supporters were also invited to take part in Roundabout’s flagship annual fundraising event, Sleep Out, on Friday 24th November to help raise vital funds to support Roundabout’s work with vulnerable young people.
