St Patrick’s Community Support Centre has been supporting those experiencing, and at risk of, homelessness in and around Fremantle for almost 50 years.
Thousands of lives have been changed, but that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the local community. By donating their time, money and energy, the people of Fremantle have always been there to support and carry on the mission of St Pat’s since the very beginning.
In 2016, with the support of The National Hotel, a new way of raising vital funds for St Patrick’s was created – Fremantle’s first Long Table Dinner.
In the years since the event has continued to grow, now stretching the length of High Street, with festivities continuing down many side streets as the entire town gathers to celebrate the festive season, all for a good cause.
The event is largely run by a team of volunteers, and thanks to the generous support of many local businesses who spare their time, money, resources and expertise to create a celebration to remember each and every year.
