Charity Time Capsule Burial

To celebrate and commemorate St Anne’s Community Services, 50th Anniversary on Wednesday 15th September, a special time capsule was buried in Temple Newsam Park, Leeds.

Organised by the St Anne’s Shared Lives Team, who support adult support placements with families, the time capsule captures life in 2021 and includes; letters from the Lord Mayor of Leeds Councillor Ashghar Khan and St Anne’s Chief Executive Officer Azra Kirkby and mementos from daily life, including photos and artwork from Shared Lives clients, coins, recordings from Shared Lives carers and a current newspaper.

Debbie Lewis, Shared Lives Lead said.

“We wanted to create a legacy from our 50th Anniversary, something which captured the essence of St Anne’s and the Shared Lives carers and the amazing work they do. Our time capsule is a moment in time, highlighting the amazing work our carers undertake, which we hope in 2071 will be a little part of our 100th Anniversary. We will be registering the capsule on a special website which keeps a record of all time capsules.”

Azra Kirkby, Chief Executive Officer for St Anne’s said,

“It was wonderful to meet so many of our carers, and the people we support at the time capsule burial. It is very humbling to be sending a message into the future, people I will most likely never meet, but I hope the contents of the capsule are inspiring and showcase the legacy we leave for future generations.”
