Mara Rypacek Miller, Managing Director at Industville, comments: “We’re thrilled that Bradford has been named the UK City of Culture 2025. To celebrate this, we wanted to shine a light on a critical service that provides so much to the community, and St Vincent’s is just that. St Vincent’s services stood out to us due to their diverse services, with the philosophy that everyone should feel they belong to a supportive and safe community. They offer a vast array of resources and have an excellent café as the hub of their centre. We’ve given the café an Industville lighting makeover to make sure this central meeting space is as warm and welcoming as it can be.”

St Vincent’s Bradford and Industville invite the community to experience the revitalised café, a testament to the power of collaboration and the positive impact it can have on the lives of individuals and neighbourhoods. Together, they look forward to building a brighter, more connected future for all.
