Dear Friends,
 
Many of you have journeyed with Golddigger Trust over the years, and we have been so thankful for your support as we have unearthed value and seen lives transformed as a result. Over the last 11 years, we have worked with thousands of young people who have seen real change in their lives, but we are acutely aware that there are thousands more who need our help. As the Trust has grown, we have long held a vision for creating our own ‘centre for young people’, somewhere that they can feel at home, and from where our award winning work can expand across the city and the UK. From our formative days working from Mandy's dining table, through to our subletting our first space, a long term home of our very own has felt like an unachievable dream with our limited funds and resources. Over the years we have been very blessed by your support, and this has allowed us to reach out to some of our countries' most vulnerable young people, launch innovative new projects across the UK, and see our staff team expand to 10 amazing professionals (who definitely wouldn't all fit around a dining table now!)
 
Owing to our current rented offices being sold, we have needed to find a new space for Golddigger Trust’s work to be based. Unexpectedly, this has coincided with an incredible opportunity for us to step out and create a new long term home for our work here in Sheffield. We are so excited about the possibilities that this new building will give us in reaching hundreds more young people, and so today we write to you to share this dream, and ask you to help us make it a reality...
Through a number of chance encounters and what felt to be supernatural provision, we recently became aware of a wonderful vacant building that we felt would be perfect to create the home for the next chapter of our story. At over 200 years old, 10 Psalter Lane is a 3-storey property that will provide around 2500 sq ft of space dedicated to supporting young people, creating a new chapter in its history and ours. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to partner with the Salvation Army, who alongside owning the property, have their purpose built centre next door, providing us with excellent facilities for hosting larger youth events and training conferences throughout the year.
Our dream is that this building will become more than just bricks and mortar. You can help us to create...
A home for young people to find support, advice and space to explore their potential.
A home for our innovative training and resources hub, supporting hundreds of youth workers from around the UK.
And a long term home for Golddigger Trust, grounding us as a leading charity who are committed to Sheffield for the long run, providing creative and suitable spaces for our busy team to work from. 
In order to make this dream a reality, we need your help. In order to open and run the ‘Golddigger Trust Centre For Young People’, we need to raise an additional £500 per month in regular giving. We need faithful people, like you and me, to stand with Golddigger Trust, committing to give £10, £20, £50 per month to see lives transformed in this building. This regular support will support Golddigger Trust’s ongoing work, including helping us to pay the rent and keep the lights on!
Could you be one of these heroes who stands with us on a monthly basis? Please sign up now to become a regular supporter and change lives.
Give Regularly
Perhaps you’re not able to give regularly at the moment, but you’d like to give a one off gift towards our refurbishment costs as we make this old office building into a home from home? We need to raise around £12,000 and we’d be delighted if you could give financially towards buying new furniture, paint and much more.
Give a One-Off Donation
And finally, we’ve got a LOT of work to do! This summer we need to renovate the whole building… which means lots of cleaning, stripping wallpaper, painting walls, digging up weeds and making the centre as good as our young people deserve! To do this could you:
 
  • Volunteer a trade? Maybe you’re an electrician, plasterer, painter and decorator by trade? Could you volunteer a day of your time to help with some of the professional tasks we need doing?
  • Join a work party? This summer, we’ll be hosting a number of mid-week and weekend ‘work parties’. Can you get your old clothes on and join us for a day or two, painting walls, cleaning out cobwebs, or doing some much needed gardening?
  • Volunteer on a weekly/monthly basis? As the Centre begins to be full of the hustle and bustle of young people from September, we are looking for a small group of wonderful volunteers who will take responsibility for keeping on top of our small (but perfectly formed!) garden spaces, and/or forming a cleaning rota for our communal ‘youth space’ rooms. Maybe you could offer to do some hoovering or grass cutting once a month?
Get In Touch To Volunteer
We hope you are as excited as we are to see this dream come to life... thank you for playing your part! Your support really does makes a real difference to young people across Sheffield and the UK. If you'd like to get further involved, or wish to make a donation by cheque, please do get in touch and we'd be delighted to speak with you! 
 
Thank you for your support and please don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with everything that's happening at Golddigger Trust and the centre as it progresses. 
 
With our love and thanks for being part of the next chapter of Golddigger Trust, 

Beth, Mandy and the whole of the Golddigger Trust team
