Gift of love is secret of success

VOLUNTEERS past and present joined clients at a Sheffield service for homeless, vulnerable and socially-excluded people as it celebrated its 20th anniversary.

St Wilfrid's Centre, in Queens Road, opened in 1991 and has helped thousands of people every year since then.During the anniversary celebrations past directors, Sister Evelyn Warnock, and Sister Kathleen Page were among those present, plus current director Kevin Bradley, guests and volunteers.

Kevin said: "We seem to have found some sort of secret for helping people feel better and however we have arrived at this I don't quite know.

"All I can say is that we have the most wonderful staff and volunteers that make it a special place.

"It is all about what you give and, as the Beatles once said, 'The love you give is equal to the love you receive'.

"Up to 80 people attend St Wilfrid's every day and we probably make a difference in some way to each one of them."
