REGULARS at a Sheffield centre for the vulnerable and socially excluded were dancing in the street when they came together to celebrate the birthdays of each and every one of them.
The St Wilfrid’s Centre in Queen’s Road organises the bash every year so clients and staff can celebrate their birthdays on the same day.
This year’s party featured an outdoor disco, as well as the summer sports and merit awards ceremony. Prizes were handed out in activities including football, table tennis and pool, as well as medals for other special achievements.
Special guest at the event was Sue Beeley, head of community at the Sheffield United Initiative who also conducted a question and answer session.
Director Kevin Bradley said: “I think the Birthday Bash provides a unique way of saying to our clients that you are recognised. Many people without friends and family don’t even get a card on their birthday, but here every person is valued equally. It is also a good excuse for the staff to have a good boogie!”
