Fundraising for Soul Cafe

Hunter CILT-A will be fundraising for the Soul Café during forthcoming events with the aim of raising $1,000 for this worthy cause each year. Please bring along some gold coins to participate in a raffle for a fine bottle of port. Soul Café provides hundreds of free meals per week to highly disadvantaged members of our local community; many of whom are homeless, have a mental illness, substance abuse issue, or live in poverty.
