Charity dinner 

THIS year’s Long Table Dinner in Fremantle will raise much needed funds for St. Patrick’s Community Support Centre.

In July St Pat’s CEO Steve McDermott announced the homeless shelter would be closing its day centre on the weekends from October, because of scarce funding.

Last year’s debut long table dinner raised more than $25,000 for St Pats, but organisers are hopeful they will smash that total this year with a 500-seater table on High Street, fire-eaters and circus acts, and a special visit from Santa Claus and St Pat’s Starlight Hotel Choir.

Mr McDermott says the charity dinners are “a wonderful demonstration of the community spirit Freo is famous for”.

Tickets for the November 30 event, organised by Fremantle BID, National Hotel and Freo council, go on sale September 1.
