Can you help us raise £10,000 by Christmas?
St. Augustine’s Centre works with the most marginalised in our society. We help people with whatever they need; hot meals, employment or immigration advice, a listening ear, ESOL classes or just a cuppa! Over 30 languages are spoken at the Centre, and it is a wonderful community. Our latest newsletter and annual report are on our website if you would like more details.
Over the past few months we have seen an increase in demand on our services, and need your help to fund our work! So, we have set ourselves an ambitious challenge to raise £10,000 before Christmas. Maybe you could have a bake sale, car boot sale, ask for sponsorship for a ridiculous challenge, or have a dress down day at work or school? Or perhaps you could give a one-off donation via https://www.give.net/20171078? You can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01422 342719 if you would like to get in touch. We’ll be using #helpinghalifax so keep an eye out for it on social media.
Thanks so much – let’s do it together!
“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.
