Last year proved very difficult for us as 2 key funding sources were lost because of the wider changes in the City.

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…..
