Thanks for the Harvest
St Wilfrid’s Centre is very grateful to all the churches, schools and individuals for all the goods received from their Harvest Festival Collections. It is with the help of these good people, including Manor Lodge School, that we are able to continue a first class service for the homeless and vulnerable in Sheffield.
Kevin Bradley, Director of St Wilfrid’s, said, “It is amazing how many people give a thought for St Wilfrid’s at this time and we are indebted to them for their continued support.”

Westfield vs St Wilf’s

This event, which is hoped will become an annual competition, was won by St Wilfrid’s and the atmosphere was really special.
Director, Kevin Bradley said, “A superb day was had by all and I am very grateful to Westfield Health for all they do for us. Graham Moore has become a particularly good friend and the rest of the team did themselves proud.”
