Sale in Aid of St Wilfrid’s

St Wilfrids October 2 sEveryone at St Wilfrid’s was delighted to welcome Bernadette Shepherd from St Vincent’s Parish to the Centre recently. Bernadette presented a cheque for £620, proceeds of a Table Top Sale she held in aid of St Wilfrid’s.

Bernadette had spent a day volunteering at the Centre late last year and was very keen to do more to help the homeless and vulnerable people who attend. She is pictured (far right) with a couple of clients presenting the cheque to St Wilfrid’s Welfare Manager, Louise Finnigan.

Managers from the store recently came on a tour of the Centre and have pledged their continued support.
