Archer Project's partnership with Orchard Square confirmed for third year

27th February 2024

We’re grateful to announce that we are Orchard Square’s Charity of the Year for a third year running, allowing us to continue building on the success of this fantastic partnership.

The Archer Project is based less than a mile from Orchard Square, where Printed by Us – our award-winning screen printing workshops and related merchandise store – is located. Last year members of the Orchard Square team took part in The Archer Project’s Bossin’ It city-wide Sleep Out campaign, raising £3,000 in sponsorship.

News of the ongoing partnership follows the appointment of Archer Project beneficiary, Danielle Richards, to the role of Security Officer within Orchard Square. Commenting on her new role, Danielle said: “I am absolutely delighted to take on this role as a fully trained Door Supervisor and CCTV badge holder – something I have aspired to do since I was 15 years old. As a teenager I sought help at The Archer Project and through their support I was able to rebuild my life and develop the skills I needed.”

“Orchard Square is a great company to work for, and a great team to be part of in terms of collaboration and ongoing development. It’s very poignant for me that the company I’m now working for are supporters of The Archer Project, the organisation which has helped me to get the role I do today.”   

Orchard Square Manager, Shay Murray comments: “As a business, we are proud to continue our support for The Archer Project, our city centre neighbour, in their ongoing work across our local communities. We have various plans in place over this next year, working with our tenants to raise awareness and funds through events – and another sleepout – for this very worthwhile cause, supporting positive change for vulnerable people within our city.

“And a big welcome to Danielle who has recently joined our security team. Through our link with Printed by Us, where she was working, we identified her as a potential candidate for our security team – and following interviews she landed the job! We are delighted to have her on board: she is a great asset to the team.”

Our CEO, Tim Renshaw, said: “We love our partnership with Orchard Square. They are so supportive and, from a city point of view, businesses working with charities is really important. Homelessness impacts all of us and it’s only together that we’ll understand and address the awfulness of homelessness and build opportunities to change lives.”
