Church Urban Fund celebrates 25 years

The Archbishop of York visits Bradford

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has spoken at a service of thanksgiving for the Church Urban Fund at Bradford Cathedral. In the last 25 years the CUF has invested about £2million through 159 grants to projects in the Diocese of Bradford. Churches in the metropolitan district run more than 125 community projects, supported by around 3,000 volunteers. Projects include work with some of the most vulnerable people and communities such as asylum seekers, people who are homeless, elderly, disabled, unemployed, children and parents.
