News from Father Hudson's Care

Join people from across the Archdiocese in backing a new fundraising appeal in aid of Father Hudson’s Care.

The social care charity is calling on people to take advantage of lockdown easing to get out in support of its new Walk a Mile appeal to help raise funds for people in need across the Archdiocese.

The appeal will see supporters challenge themselves to get out walking, running, cycling or skating while raising funds for Father Hudson’s work with vulnerable people. Normally reserved as a fundraising campaign for Catholic senior schools, the Walk a Mile appeal is being opened up this year to anyone that wants to take part. And Father Hudson’s Care is urging you to get involved.

The Walk a Mile appeal launched in May and will run to October. So why not make the most of the summer and get out and about in aid of a local good cause? Money raised through the appeal will enable Father Hudson’s Care to continue its work with people in need.

The charity, which is the principal social care charity of the Archdiocese, works with people who are experiencing need or facing adversities. It provides people with tailored support so they can live with dignity and joy. This includes supporting homeless people to make a fresh start, providing food and essential items to people who are destitute, supporting families to overcome difficulties, and providing care for older people and adults with a range of physical and learning disabilities.
