We are pleased to announce that Wai Yin Society received two awards at the Manchester BME Network awards ceremony, on Thursday 9 February 2017, to showcase and reward the work being done by members & supporters.
Our Welcome Centre, on Cheetham Hill, won an award for the fantastic work being done, by staff and volunteers, for people in one of the most disadvantaged areas in the country. It was in the category, Community Support (frontline) – for sustained support services beyond the usual.
Rachel Chee, neice of our beloved hero, Dr Sylvia Sham, received an award on her behalf for her fantastic dedication, and outstanding achievements at Wai Yin during her life. Sylvia, we will always remember you!
There was also a raffle on the night (proceeds to the Sylvia Sham Legacy Fund), which raised over £600! Thank you so much for your support. We will continue her good work!
