I've never heard of this brand but given your location it's probably a private label brand for a British or European dealer or chain. Sora came out in 2000, replacing RSX, so consider it around the crossover between entry level and mid-range. This is the original Sora 3300 series. The 3400 series came out in 2007, so it should be 2000-2006. Frame is oversize, so it may be aluminum, but stays look relatively thin so it could be hydro-formed steel. The best indicator to determine the tubeset level is the outside diameter of the seat tube in junction with the seat post diameter, once you determine whether it's steel and aluminum (use a magnet or post pics of welds). Given era and level, it's probably Chinese or Taiwanese manufacture. Sometimes the serial number will provide a clue to the manufacturer and exact build date.

Looks like the aluminum tubes I've seen on some Marin MTBs and hybrids of the early 2000s.
