We were thrilled to recently receive a personal message from President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins to mark our 25th Anniversary celebration and the contribution so many staff and volunteers have made to our community.
In his letter, the President remarks that:
Their compassion and spirit of humanity has, for twenty five years, impacted positively on the lives of many vulnerable Irish people as they struggled to build futures of hope within the community of Leeds
So many Irish citizens who are isolated or marginalised have benefitted from the work of Leeds Irish Health & Homes. The shelter and sense of community you offer brings with it a light of hope for better futures and new possibilities
These lovely words will carry us through this most special of years and we thank President Higgins for taking the time out of his busy schedule to acknowledge our achievement in such a warm and personal manner.
