Yvonne Cass

Yvonne Cass, who for many years has been an inspiration locally, regionally and nationally for a number of people and organisations passed away last week.

For over 10 years, Yvonne Cass was a champion of Northern Refugee Centre (NRC) and what we were trying to do.  Whilst an asylum seeker she set up her own organisation MARCO in Barnsley, with some other committed people there, which was critical in earlier times of dispersal there of ensuring that the rights and needs of asylum seekers, refugees AND migrants were recognised and respected.  She would not accept that there should be any barriers between these groups.  The changes that Barnsley went through in those times from a relatively monocultural town to become a more multicultural place, with a diversity of nationalities, religions and customs was very much strengthened by the energy and commitment she bought to it.
