The Sanctuary

I've been to the opening of a new centre called The Sanctuary in Sheffield which helps support refugees and asylum seekers. Sheffield became the first place in the UK to be given the status of 'City of Sanctuary' for refugees. That was more than ten years ago - and there are currently around eight hundred people seeking asylum in the city.

  1. Who gave Sheffield the status of 'City of Sanctuary' ten years ago ?
    It is very good to hear that this city is helping refugees in this way.
