Reverend Busks to Raise Money for Homeless
On Saturday 17th August Sheffield's very own Reverend and the Makers frontman Jon McLure will be taking to the streets to busk in order to raise money and awareness for Sheffield's local youth housing charity – Roundabout.
The singer will be joining us from 2pm on Devonshire Green to support the latest fundraising campaign – Buskabout.
Roundabout supports over 150 young homeless people in the city and they work together to provide young people with a safe place to stay. Buskabout sees local artists and musicians helping out across the city by busking and raising money to help pay for a vital renovation. The campaign kicked off in April by the Early Cartographers who busked in Barker's Pool and raised £110 as well as writing a special song for the cause.
Amy Casbolt, Fundraising Co-ordinator at Roundabout said: “It’s great to have a well known musician like Jon, support our Buskabout campaign. Roundabout desperately needs to raise funds to ensure our vital services for young homeless people can continue. Jon will help hugely in raising our profile as well as money for our cause.”
