St. Wilfrid's Centre Summer Fayre and Wheelbarrow Competition

St Wilfrid’s Centre wool stop at nothing as supporters, staff and clients create an incredible cascade of over 2000 knitted flowers.

The outside of St Wilfrid’s Centre on Queen’s Road has been decorated with a vibrant display of flowers to celebrate the work they do for the vulnerable and isolated people of South Yorkshire.

As part of the build-up to their Summer Fayre and Wheelbarrow Competition held on Saturday 6 July, a request went out to help create the cascade. The response was overwhelming with flowers being made by staff, clients and volunteers at the Centre and hundreds more arriving from supporters, some as far afield as Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

As local need increases and demands on services at the Centre grows, the cascade and Fayre aims to raise the Centre’s profile and much needed funds. It costs over £550,000 to run the St Wilfrid’s Centre each year and as a charity they are dependent on the generosity and support of people with big hearts and generous spirits.

If the cascade brings a smile to your face or you just want to show your support for the valuable work of St Wilfrid’s Centre, please make a donation via the website www.stwilfridscentre.org or by ringing the centre on 0114 2555720.
