A Lasting 

Testimony

From

Sheffield

As we learn about each others lives

we can lay the foundations for a Compassionate Sheffield.

“I think we all have a story. And all our stories are interesting to other people. I think as humans, we like to know about other people’s lives and what they get up to etc. So whoever you are, whatever your background, whatever happened to you during the pandemic period, that is your individual story. And together that makes up the story of Sheffield.”
