Raising Money Through Football for a Sheffield-Based Charity

Charity Websites - Sheffield Mencap & GatewayGo Web Design & Development has charity at the centre of what we do. We work with a number of local charities to help and support them with their web presence. During Ramadan, a period of giving for the Muslim community, we decided to raise funds through the players of the Sheffield-based football team that we sponsor. This was also to pay respect to our many Muslim clients and friends who are currently making huge sacrifices in their everyday lives.

Go Web donated all player ‘subs’ last Sunday to Sheffield Mencap & Gateway. Mencap is one of our charity partners, whom we have supported for a number of years. Charities have struggled tremendously during the COVID-19 pandemic, so any funds are greatly appreciated at the moment. We have always engaged with local charities and could think of no better cause than Mencap, which does amazing work for people with learning disabilities.

How We Support this Charity

Mencap provides a wide range of services for children and adults who suffer from learning disabilities. Not only do they support individuals with learning disabilities, but their families and carers too. Based near Norfolk Park in the centre of Sheffield, we first started working for Mencap around four years ago, when we rebuilt their website. We have supported Sheffield Mencap ever since, managing their web presence for them.

This business started with the support of not only Yorkshire-based companies but also local charities. We were given opportunities right at the beginning to help build our web portfolio by working with small charities. This is why, as a company, Go Web will always look to pay back the faith shown in us by local charities and not-for-profit organisations.
