Sheffield Mencap support adults and children with learning disabilities and autism, and their families.
We will be helping to clear out a cottage in their grounds which needs emptying before they can do essential works to make it ready to rent out. The rental income will be used to fund our services so we can support more people.
The tenant has moved out of the cottage but has left belongings which need clearing. There are a couple of old wardrobes although they don't seem particularly heavy. There are also a couple of sheds belonging to the cottage which have stuff needing to be thrown out.
Please bring your head torch and some gloves. Thanks!
