We would not be able to continue to offer a service to the homeless and vulnerable without the aid of our dedicated volunteers,” said Kevin Bradley, Director of St Wilfrid’s Centre, recently.
Glen Stevens, parishioner at St Joseph’s Dinnington, regularly gives up his time to tutor clients in the Skills Workshop, which is a great example of the work done by volunteers. Glen is also a retired wrought iron worker and recently completed and installed a new set of perimeter railings at the Centre on Queens Road, Sheffield. Completed and erected with the help of clients who attend the day centre and other volunteers, the perimeter surrounding now gives the place a real ‘touch of class’.
St Wilfrid’s boasts a workforce of more than 100 volunteers who bring their different skills and talents to various facets of the Centre. These could include working in the kitchen or café, teaching in the educational classes or in the pottery or skills workshop.
As the saying goes ‘There’s Only One St Wilfrid’s Centre’.
