Grant Award for St Wilfrid’s

St Wilfrid’s Centre for the homeless and vulnerable people in Sheffield was recently delighted to receive a grant award from The Plater Trust.  The award was to be presented at the Cardinal Hume Centre London by the new Cardinal Vincent Nichols, but unfortunately he was called to Rome at short notice.  The able deputy for the day was Archbishop George Stack who thanked all the charities involved, and is seen here with team St Wilf’s at the recent presentation ceremony, from left to right Simrin Choudhrie, St Wilfrid’s patron, Helen Lowry, Director’s PA, Kevin Bradley, Director, Archbishop George Stack and Mandi Hunt, Consultant Fundraiser.
