Together for the event were more than 40 of the centre�s neighbours, supporters, volunteers, clients and donors to enjoy a bite and a cup of tea while learning more about the work the centre does to help the homeless and those in need.

St Patrick�s deputy chief executive Michael Piu said the Starlight Hotel Choir provided entertainment while the attendees chatted.

�We had everyone from neighbours to politicians to other agencies here,� he said.

�Staff, volunteers and clients were all on hand to talk about what we do here so we�re thrilled to see such a good turnout.�

The centre also offered a free three-course lunch on Friday.
