Thank you to everyone that attended our 50th Anniversary on the 22nd of September! We are very grateful for those that took the time to celebrate our progress and achievements through the years. We would like to say thank you to Mike Whitfield who attended on behalf of his mother Lavinia Whitfield who passed away this year. She is a massive part of CATH’s history and one of the driving forces behind the charity.
Special thanks goes to the Panini Press Chester. They are a local business near The Harold Tomlin Centre who provided a beautiful afternoon tea spread for the occasion.

A contactless donation scheme which aims to put an end to homelessness in Chester has been launched on World Homelessness Day.
Payment terminals will be set up in the city where people can tap to donate £3 with the money being distributed between three Chester charities; Chester Aid to the Homeless (CATH), Share and Soul Kitchen.
The ‘End Homelessness’ scheme will be hosted by The Chester Bluecoat Charity who will ensure that 100% of the money donated will go directly to support homeless people in the city.
The scheme has the full support of Chester BID and Cheshire West and Chester Council, however full governance will stay with the fundraiser, The Chester Bluecoat Charity.
Allocating the money will always be agreed together so that the most is made from the funding received to help those experiencing homelessness and a full report will be made annually by The Chester Bluecoat Charity for the public to see, to the last penny, where their donations have been used.
