A woman who has devoted her life to helping others was guest of honour at a pupils’ achievement evening.

Sylvia Wright, who runs The Sylvia Wright Trust, and retired headteacher and trust trustee Tony Hartigan, joined pupils and staff from St. Mary’s, Menston, to celebrate GCSE results at the annual Year 11 achievement evening.

Sylvia sold her home and possessions in Leeds 33 years ago to work among the sick and disabled in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
