The Archbishop of York paid a visit to a care centre in the area as part of his six-month pilgrimage through all 21 deaneries of the Diocese of York.

Dr John Sentamu visited residents of the Sue Ryder Holme Hall in Holme-on-Spalding Moor, and met staff for a chat about what the centre does and how their work contributes to the community.

He then joined some of the residents for an afternoon tea and chatted to them about their interests, hobbies and time at Sue Ryder Holme Hall.

Sue Ryder Holme Hall is a specialist neurological care centre which looks after people aged 18 and over, who have life-changing conditions affecting their brain and nervous system including stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease.

David Millican, head of supporter services at Sue Ryder Holme Hall, said: “It was an absolute delight. Our residents and staff were thrilled to have met the Archbishop and I think he enjoyed himself too.”
