This year's Charity Incubators are:
The Archer Project
Close to the hearts of many, we chose to support The Archer Project as our City Charity Incubators for 2022 because of the fantastic work they do within our community.
Running for over thirty years, the charity has supported thousands of people who were homeless in Sheffield, aiming to get people into accommodation as well as helping them to build fulfilling lives, by supporting them to develop their independence and change negative behaviour.
Following an arson attack on their offices (2020), the charity was left without a base. We are so humbled to be able to provide a space for the fundraising team to work together again, during a time where fundraising has been particularly challenging due to Covid restrictions. City aims to nurture the charity and enable them to be in a greater position to do what they do best, supporting the community, with less pressure and burden than before the incubation period.

The Archer Project is a place where homeless and vulnerable people can change their lives for the better. The charity’s mission is to help homeless people achieve a better life by supporting them to develop their independence, improve their ability to tackle setbacks and help to identify and change negative behaviour to improve their wellbeing.

Our support for local charities
City’s annual charity golf day
This event has supported charities such as St Lukes Hospice, Weston Park Cancer Charity and Children’s Hospital Charity being amongst some of the beneficiaries. Around 25 teams of corporate and partnership supporters, know no bounds in always surpassing our expectations to support the day.
City will do as much as we possibly can to support and sponsor local charity and community events such as the Archer Project’s Sleep Out, Ashgate Hospice Chesterfield Half Marathon and NHS Thank You Gala Ball to name a few that we have supported over the years.
Raffles and Auctions
We do our best to support as many local raffles and auctions as we can by giving tickets and prizes that we hope raises as much money as possible for the chosen charities.
We love supporting Hallam FM’s chosen charity Cash for Kids. This charity aims to make sure all children in Sheffield have a present to open on Christmas morning. City support this by inviting drivers and staff to donate gifts, we all love to be involved in this great cause.
Donating citygrab delivery fees
The launch of City’s delivery app ‘citygrab’ provided a fantastic opportunity to raise funds for local charities, by donating weekend delivery fees. After raising £17,087.86 for the NHS, we dedicated each weekend throughout May 2020 to a local charity, to support them during the COVID-19 pandemic. In total, our wonderful customers raised £40,096.85 which we donated to Weston Park Cancer Charity, Cash for Kids, Ashgate Hospice, Chesterfield Royal Charity, St Luke’s Hospice and The Children’s Hospital Charity.
With The Children’s Hospital Charity close to the heart of many of our employees, we wanted to show our support by sponsoring a Bears of Sheffield bear. With lots of fundraising activities, from Bearathons, competitions, online bear trails, and even a half marathon, our Steampunk Bear raised a whopping £62,103.44 for the charity. It’s amazing to have been involved in such an exciting campaign that brings the people of Sheffield together, whilst supporting the charity.
Thank You NHS Gala Ball
Held in partnership with Sheffield Hospitals Charity, the City Taxis Thank You NHS Gala Ball allowed us to say the most heartfelt thank you to our NHS staff across Sheffield for their courage, their compassion, and their wonderful care and will support the great work provided by the Charity! The evening of glitz and glamour raised an unbelievable £140,001.30which will be donated to the charity’s new ‘We’ve Got You’ campaign.
Fundraising and Volunteering
To support our key charities, members of Team City have been taking time out to volunteer and carry out fundraising activities. More recently the team headed to S6 Foodbank to help with food packing and distribution and Doorways Derby to support their weekly street kitchen and food bank for the homeless and vulnerable. In 2021, seven members of Team City took on the Sheffield Half Marathon in aid of The Children’s Hospital Charity. In 2023, the team are looking to complete the 3 peaks challenge.
