Each year the All Hallows’ School Community focuses its fundraising efforts on a particular project.
Our Social Justice Captains launched the 2020 Whole School Project, 'Ignition Mission', at the beginning of the year.
The Project will raise funds to support the Romero Centre, a Mercy Community ministry, to purchase a people-mover.
The Romero Centre is an organisation which aims to provide a welcoming sanctuary for the most vulnerable and marginalised people such as people seeking refuge and asylum. It provides services, including counselling, case coordination, legal support, housing placement, support for education and employment and referrals to free medical services where the clients are ineligible for support or service access elsewhere.
Project ‘Ignition Mission’ aims to provide a new people-mover vehicle for the Romero Centre to replace one the School purchased through project funds in 2014. The vehicle is needed by the Centre to ensure that its clients have access to crucial services, both at Romero and at other agencies, and to maximise the engagement of the clients who are often isolated in the community. Activities such as networking meetings, school holiday activities, intercultural activities and community friendship events will be made more accessible for more people with a new vehicle. It also functions to collect basic items that are donated to the Romero Centre, like food and toiletries.
We look forward to the creative ways in which our community responds to this project.
