You can raise money for St. Augustine's Centre by taking part in the Halifax Long March this Easter! Do you have what it takes to walk the secret 26-mile route around Halifax and Calderdale? Starting at midnight on April 21st/22nd, you have until 10am to complete the whole route. There will be a number of rest centres and free refreshments along the way, including first aid and GPS tracking to keep everyone safe. Are you interested in representing St. Augustine's Centre? It is not only a fantastic opportunity to raise some money for the Centre, but also a chance to challenge your strength and endurance. Have a look at their website and choose to walk for us by selecting St. Augustine's Centre from the list on the registration page.

It's #fundingfriday and today we're celebrating the Welcome Café and our wonderful team of volunteers who provide the community with delicious meals 4 days a week. Last year they served a massive 11,587 meals! We are so grateful for the hard work they continue to put in every day, and also to their commitment to providing incredible tasting, hot and comforting meals. Thank you! A huge thank you is also due to National Lottery Community Fund for funding the Welcome Café and Community Lunch. If you would like to make a donation to support any of the work we do or activities we provide at St. Augustine's Centre, then find us of LocalGiving or give.net.

Thank You!
