St Wilfrid’s Centre – Exhibitions at Sheffield Central Library and Millennium Gallery

Written by St Wilfrid’s Centre

Helping homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded adults in Sheffield since 1991


2021 has marked the 30th year of St Wilfrid’s Centre supporting vulnerable, isolated and homeless
adults in Sheffield. To celebrate the event, to recognise those who helped set the Centre up in
1991 and to thank the many supporters, staff and clients over the years, two exhibitions are being
held in the centre of Sheffield.

Throughout the whole of December, the Sheffield Central Library are hosting a large exhibition
about St Wilfrid’s Centre in their foyer – ‘Our Past, Our Present, Our Future and Our Thanks’ There
are 16 display boards of text and pictures to mark our 30th Anniversary and the contribution that
individuals, staff, volunteers, clients and parishes have made. The Library is open 10-5 on Monday
to Friday and 10-4 on Saturday. Pictures of the exhibition are attached.

From the 13th December, there will also be a display case at the Millennium Gallery exhibiting
pieces of pottery made by our clients to celebrate the 30th Anniversary.
We are very grateful to both our hosts and to all the wonderful individuals, trusts and companies
who financially support our work and make it possible for us to offer a safe and supportive place to
all the clients.

Please support the Centre by visiting the exhibitions. The Nativity Sets, Christmas Cards, Calendar
and other items are all available to buy from the Centre.

“I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for St Wilfrid’s Centre. I was so ill and you got the GP to send
medicine. You delivered food parcels and kept checking on me. You saved my life’’ Client
Donations are always very much appreciated. It costs nearly £500, 000 to run the Centre each year,
yet 20p provides a hot drink for a client, £2 a hot two course meal and £10 pays for an emergency
food parcel.

Our belief is the same as it was 30 years ago – that past and present experiences of people are
respected and they have the capacity to determine their future circumstances regardless of their
history.
