We’ve had a wonderful morning at the Trust, welcoming the charming and personable Most Reverend John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York. He spent time this morning speaking with the many people who have benefited from the services offered here, the work with people who have a visual impairment, hearing loss, and / or dual sensory loss or other disabilities.

He was gracious in the time he took to meet people and talk with them and when he opened the Sensory Hub officially, he spoke about the importance of volunteers, the essential role they play in society and to encourage volunteers to tell others about the rewarding nature of that role to encourage others to do the same.
It was a very powerful message about helping others and that this is so very rewarding in itself.
We are all very proud of the work that is done here and the Wilberforce team that we are all a part of. Please see some of the photos from this event and thank you to all who attended. We also live streamed the event via our Facebook account so you may have seen us there too.
