Sheffield Flourish honoured as one of Lord Mayor’s charities

Sheffield Flourish were delighted to be honoured as one of Lord Mayor Magid Magid’s three charities for his term in office this year, sharing the limelight with the excellent Sheffield Women’s Counselling and Therapy Service and Unity Gym Project.

At his inauguration attendees, including Josie and Jo from Sheffield Flourish, were given a snapshot of his life. Speakers charted his journey from arriving in Sheffield as a five-year-old refugee to Councillor for Broomhill and Sharrow Vale Ward and the youngest Lord Mayor of Sheffield.

It is an absolute delight to be given this honour, but especially exciting to be working with a Lord Mayor who has energy, enthusiasm, and plans to “bring the role into the 21st Century”. His story has been featured on the BBC, as well as Buzzfeed.
