Since its beginnings in 1881, Nugent has been at the heart of its community, providing a vital safety net for vulnerable children and adults. However, it is a charity which, to carry on the good work of founder Father James Nugent, remains grateful for the support of parishes, community groups and other backers, such as the above-mentioned fundraisers.
As the charity states: ‘We continue to provide support and care where local government funding and austerity is impacting most and creating hardship, and this means that we rely on the support of our fantastic fundraising volunteers and supporter groups more than ever.’
There are plenty of ways for Catholic Pic readers to get involved in the fundraising drive for Nugent in 2019, be it to run, walk, dance – or simply help fill a collection box. Those seeking a more adventurous experience could sign up for one of our 2019 challenges, including abseiling from the Anglican Cathedral, or riding the Lakes – or you could organise your own event.
