Jefferson Sheard Architects is helping to raise festive cheer for Emmaus Hull by sponsoring the annual charity carol concert, which is this year being hosted by Hymers College.
Jefferson Sheard, alongside fellow colleagues working on the Learning Resource Centre project at Hymers – Triangle Consulting Engineers, Alan Wood and Partners and PDR Construction – have together sponsored £1000 to cover the production of the programme.
Emmaus is Hull’s first community devoted to helping people who were formerly homeless. They provide a place to live, work and receive support. For example, a current scheme of Emmaus supports thirty people who are now living and working with Emmaus to build their confidence and provide themselves a better life after experiencing homelessness.
The £3.6m Learning Resource Centre at Hymers has just begun on site. The innovative centre will match the prestige of the current buildings, including Jefferson Sheard’s Music Building which was opened by Dr John Rutter in the Autumn.
The charitable act of hosting this concert couldn’t be more pertinent; music is important to the staff and pupils at Hymers College.
The concert takes place this evening in the main hall.
