SHEFFIELD is set to welcome Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, for a series of four engagements in the city on Wednesday, May 4.

Her first stop will be at Emmaus Primary on the Wybourn estate, one of the first in the country to be a joint Catholic and Church of England faith school.

She will meet staff, pupils and student volunteers from Sheffield University’s linguistics society who run an after-school literacy and language project for the children.

Next the Duchess will visit a centre for homeless men and women in Cadman Street, Attercliffe run by Emmaus UK, of which she is a patron.

Stop three will be at the Northern General Hospital where Camilla will open the new Centre for Biomedical Research.

There she will meet leading experts who are pioneering treatments for osteoporosis and cardiac conditions.

Her final port of call will be the Fox Hill and Parson Cross Advice Service on Wordsworth Avenue, which provides free advice on welfare benefits, housing, debts, consumer and employment issues.

This year the service has dealt with more than 2,000 clients and brought in £1.8 million in unclaimed benefit and debt write-offs, as well as winning many court cases.
