Housing is important, yet you do more then that you give people like me and Paddy a chance to do something without feeling like we will be judged. A community that Leeds Irish Health and Homes have set up and run touches individuals.

Brian Clark

Housing

I’m very genuinely sincerely humbled and honoured to be part of the Leeds Irish Health & Homes in any way possible. Having no family of my own now in Leeds (originally from) Leeds. On my return back l felt l was adopted and as a family member. Its very special feeling to me!

Under two year’s l had never sung in my life period. Joined the local church choir for their Carol’s service. Then was asked to join the church choir – me?…. During this l was asked to try for the “Leeds Philharmonic Chorus” – Woooow still can’t believe it!… l then was asked to join the “West Riding Opera Company” too. I love all types of music – “eclectic tastes!”

*Best of all is feeling a family member with everyone at Irish Health &, Home’s!..

Wishing everyone many thanks and God bless to you all…..
