Our History

 

Our previous name was Rotherham Wah Hong Chinese Association, and we were established in 1995 and have continued to bring together the Chinese community in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, thanks to a handful of dedicated and committed volunteers.

South Yorkshire WH Community also receives support in kind from umbrella organisation REMA (Rotherham Ethnic Minority Alliance). With kind support from REMA, South Yorkshire WH Community has successfully been receiving Awards For All lottery funding to allow this voluntary group to host various activities, presently:

  • Cook and Share Luncheon Group

  • Line dancing classes

  • Chat and Craft

  • Cultural celebrations like Chinese New Year and the Mooncake Festival

  • Summer outings

We also participate in community events like Black History Month, Rotherham Diversity Festival, workshops for Love is Louder & Hate Crime projects in Rotherham.
