Every month, the residents of Sharrow, Sheffield get together for a cook-along…
Sheffield draws students from all over the world to come and study at its universities, but sometimes it’s easy for international students to get lost amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. Yat-Fai, as part of the international student support team at Sheffield Hallam University and an international student herself, introduced monthly cooking events for everyone in Sharrow to attend, to make new friends and get cooking! With this idea in mind Yat-Fai needed a space to accomodate her fellow cooks!
“We have particularly enjoyed the themed cuisines that the cook-alongs offer. As a result, students have the chance to cook something new and learn more about the different dishes around the world. Also, the interactivity of the sessions where our students help to cook the meals with local people, really helps to build on the students’ confidence and helps them to practice their English.”
somewhereto_ were on hand to help and found Yat-Fai a large space with a kitchen and eating area for the Sharrow residents to get cooking.

Six of our own somewhereto_ young people are carrying the Olympic Torch at different points in the relay. We are VERY proud of them!
somewhereto_ were able to secure three performance spots at T4 on the Beach, performing at the same event as some great celebs…
Our talented somewhereto_ young people, Natalie May, Cleo Sol and RoxXxan were amongst stars such as Katy B, Jason Derulo and Dappy!
The day was an incredible success and the audience was really lively and so supportive of our new acts! See the action here.
Since last year’s T4 on the Beach our performers have gone on to do some incredible things with the success and support they had;
Natalie May who already has her own charity called ‘The Mad Experience’, is starting her own jewellery line and just released a new single called Sunshine - check it out here, Cleo Sol has just had a single out called never the right time and find RoxXxan’s new single here!
“I’d never been to T4 on the Beach before and it was so much fun, the fact that I got to perform on top of seeing all these amazing acts was an absolute dream come true!” - Cleo Sol, 21, London @CleoSol
“I’m amazed! I had the most amazing day, it couldn’t have been better and it’s all thanks to somewhereto_!" - RoxXxan, 23, London @ROtripleX

One of our regional coordinators, Jaffer Hussain from Blackburn was nominated by a young person to hold the Olympic Torch through his local area. Check out what he had to say;
I’ve never been a big fan of sports. Well the only sports I’ve liked is wrestling and even then it’s classed as sport’s entertainment. In a way this is the unique thing about the Olympic Torch, you don’t need to be into sports to be able to get nominated or even selected to carry it. My name’s Jaf and I’m one of the regional coordinators for somewhereto_.
I’m one of the lucky 8,000 people who have been selected to carry the Olympic Torch as it makes its way through the country. I used to work for the local council and one of the young people I worked with nominated me:
“My local hero is in a league of his own, he’s been my youth worker for over a year now and I’ve never known anyone that can change lives like he can. I come from Blackburn and life in this town can be pretty tough but he offers a helping hand to anyone that needs it, he works and works and works to make sure that life for young people is filled with rich knowledge and a sense of direction. He haschanged my life in so many ways, through him I have acquired life skills, communication skills, leadership skills and knowledge that no other could offer me and that’s just my life he’s changed, there are hundreds of people that could tell you the same. I can think of no other person more eligible to carry a torch for the Olympic games, and even then he’ll be educating as he goes along.”
The whole experience to date has been mind blowing and I can’t wait until the 22nd June. You know you can ask any youth worker and they would tell you exactly the same thing as I’m saying – we don’t get into this field of work to get recognised or for awards. We work unsociable hours and weekends away from our loved ones because we want to help the next generation of young people and provide them with valuable life skills that cannot be taught in schools. My time with the local council was amazing. I used to work with up to 60 young people a week, 4 nights a week helping them to make a difference in their communities.
It’s such an honour to be able to carry the torch, knowing that the last 9 years of hard work doing local, regional, national and international work building up partnerships along the way. It is quite humbling, exciting but at the same time nerve wracking but hey – ho it’s also a once in a life time opportunity so I say bring it on!

Are you an athlete in Aberdeen? (or are any of your friends?)
Fantastic indoor track located in Aberdeen’s impressive sports village. This is a great place to practice sprinting, although you could also use this for any suitable alternative activity. Great indoor athletics area for individuals and teams alike. Perfect for sprint training.

Check these guys out - Casually practicing their free running in the Wales Millennium Centre itself!
Andrew and his friends are really keen and talented freerunners. Using their incredible skills, they are setting up a social enterprise where they can teach free running techniques to young people in a safe environment. When they were asked where their dream space to practice their freerunning was they replied with the Wales Millenium Centre.
“somewhereto_ is helping ‘Trick Unique’ loads by helping us branch out by free running in locations we wouldn’t have dreamed of in Wales!”
somewhereto_ introduced the freerunners to the Wales Millenium Centre and they were incredibly supportive and encouraging. They were given a practice day in January and their showcase was held in February. The event went incredibly well and you can see them in action here! The event has changed Alex’s life and increased awareness of freerunning in Wales.
Feel inspired? Check out the spaces we currently have available, and make your own success story out of it. If free running isn’t your thing, it is very very likely we can cater for your passion!
