It is close to Silent Night… and one should never be silent about the plight of our homeless and disadvantaged people, but a SILENT AUCTION is all together a different form of silence where one can make a difference and support charity while bidding on something special.

St Patrick’s LONG TABLE DINNER silent auction is on:

Whether it’s a weekend away you’re after; a new piece of art for the front room; or some signed Dockers gear for your loved one’s Christmas gift, the Freo Long Table Dinner charity auction has something for everyone and is NOW OPEN! All proceeds go directly to St Pat’s to help us in our mission to end homelessness in Fremantle and surrounds. Check it out: www.myminiauction.com/stpats

Thank you to all the amazing and generous local business, artists and the community who donated.

GO LISTEN TO THE STORIES OF THE HOMELESS IN FREO TODAY

Posted in city of fremantle, homelessness, social services, st patricks, Uncategorized by freoview on August 9, 2019

 

An event to put a human face on homelessness will be held in Fremantle TODAY between 10-12 am in the High Street Mall as part of Homelessness Week.

Couch Conversations – a collaboration between St Patrick’s Community Support Centre, Uniting Care West and the City of Fremantle – will feature ten people with lived experience of homelessness who will be willing and available to share their stories with people passing by.

St Pats Chief Executive Michael Piu said a similar event held last year was a very positive experience for everyone involved.

“One of the common things we hear from people who are homeless is that they feel invisible and ignored – that people just walk past and look the other way,” Mr Piu said.

Couch Conversations is a great way to show that people who are homeless are real people with real stories to tell. The aim is to increase awareness of the issue, what is being done to reduce homelessness in Fremantle and how people can help out.

Couch Conversations follows the launch earlier this week of the 20 Lives 20 Homes program, which is two-year initiative to provide housing and wrap-around support to people sleeping rough in Fremantle.

The program will be coordinated by Ruah Community Services in conjunction with St Pats, Fremantle Foundation and the City of Fremantle.

Almost $1 million has been raised by the private sector to support the program, with the state government contributing $395,000 over two years and the City of Fremantle committing $40,000 this year with a further $40,000 proposed for next year.

WHY PEOPLE BECOME HOMELESS

Posted in city of fremantle, homelessness, social services, st patricks, Uncategorized by freoview on August 8, 2019

 

Friday 10-12 mall talks

 

 

COUCH CONVOS is on tomorrow-Friday in the Fremantle High Street mall between 10-12am and will help people to get over some of the ignorance about homelessness.

People who have been homeless will talk about their experience; how they got there, how they coped with it and what the challenges were and are.

Many homeless people have mental health issues and far too many of those who sleep on the street are only in their teens.

Take the time to go and listen and engage with homeless people and don’t judge them as being the enemies of our society. Homelessness is a very serious social issue that needs priority in our governments as it is not acceptable that so many thousands of people have to sleep rough every night.

BIG ST PATRICK’S CHRISTMAS LUNCH

 

 

More than 200 people enjoyed a three-course Christmas lunch in Princess May Park, organised by Fremantle’s St Patrick’s community care.

Fremantle Labor member Minister Simone McGurk was there, as were Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett and Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt and his young daughter Aoife, who was a bit worried about Santa, played by former Freo Councillor Rob Fittock.

St Pat’s Michael Piu and Victor Crevatin were supported by many volunteers when they were serving  the Christmas roast.

It was a heart-warming event and nice to see so many smiling faces from those who are doing it tough.

BRILLIANT LONG TABLE DINNER IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, community, homeless, social services, st patricks by freoview on November 29, 2018

 

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Fremantle Long Table Dinner this evening was bigger and better than ever, stretching nearly 500 metres along historic High Street to accommodate 1,200 guests who all enjoyed a three-course dinner.

It is expected that the fundraising event organised by the National Hotel, St Patrick’s and many volunteers and supporting businesses will raise $ 100,000 for St Pats, that will go toward supplying services for the homeless and needy people in our city.

Four makeshift kitchens were used to prepare the meals and the guests were entertained by Circus WA performers, live music and street artists.

The Moore&Moore cafe also put up a Christmas Market in Henry Street to support the event.

This is an outstanding effort by everyone involved and they all deserve huge gratitude from the Freo community for making this such a special and heart-warming evening, although the sea breeze created a bit of a chill in the air.

Well done all and congratulations and thank you!!!

JOIN THE FREO LONG DINNER TABLE

To paraphrase what Prime Minister Bob Hawke said when the America’s Cup was won, you are a bum if you are not at tonight’s great Fremantle Long Table Dinner.

Even if you don’t have a ticket to sit down and have a meal, you can still enjoy the activities and ambience and the Christmas Market in Henry Street.

The event is a fundraiser for St Patrick’s so bring a few dollars to donate for the very good cause and help people in need.

There is a great vibe at the long table dinner, so come along and be part of this VERY FREO! event.
