St Wilfrids Brazilian Day sWorld Cup Referee, Howard Webb probably has more things on his mind as he prepares for the World Cup in Brazil, but he still had time for St Wilfrid’s.  Pictured with St Wilfrid’s Centre Director’s PA, Helen Lowry (left) and Development Manager, Deb Leonard, Howard intends to visit the Centre when he returns from his travels.

However, St Wilfrid’s also took part in the celebrations at their very own Brazilian Day on Wednesday, 18 June in association with the Halifax.  Director of St Wilfrid’s, Kevin Bradley and Ryan Metcalf, Branch Manager at Halifax, Meadowhall, have teamed up to arrange a special day.  Clients at St Wilf’s will played  a football match against the Halifax, refereed by ex-England and Sheffield United legend, Tony Currie.  In addition to presentations of medals and Brazilian shirts the day consisted of a barbecue with South American themed food, samba dancers and other sporting activities.

St Wilfrid’s Centre for homeless and vulnerable people on Queens Road, Sheffield is now famous for holding special theme days for clients and the local community, and hopes to continue this with a little extra help from the Halifax.
