#helpinghalifax You may remember back in late August 2015 we set ourselves the ambitious task of trying to raise £10,000 before Christmas. On the 1st December we reached that amazing target with one month to go! Thank you to all who have arranged various different fundraising events from a Musical Odyssey, boot sales, sponsored walks, baby and toddler nearly new sale, bun sales, bonfires, and all of you who have made individual donations. Our current total (Jan 2016) stands at £13,957.14 and is increasing daily. We have so many people to thank - due to your overwhelming generosity we can continue to help the marginalised people in our society and continue the wonderful work and community of St. Augustine’s.
“St. Augustine’s are carrying out vital work with some of the most vulnerable people. I have heard some harrowing stories at their centre, but also seen, that with the right support, families and young people who have come from the most disadvantaged places, in the most difficult of circumstances, go on to have bright futures. It is essential that their work continues and I will support them wherever possible.” Holly Lynch MP (Aug 2015)
St. Augustine's Centre, based on Hanson Lane in Halifax, is a community centre for anyone who needs help, advice or support. Based on the Christian faith which respects and values individuals, the Centre welcomes the vulnerable and cares for all, regardless of faith, ethnicity, background or any other factors.
For over 40 years we have offered a warm and welcoming environment for people to access support and advice from friendly workers and volunteers. We aim to help with basic needs and hope to build confidence to encourage participation within the community and to prevent isolation.
