Winter Relief Fundraisers

Register for an event or book tickets here!

'Share your Warmth' is our theme for this year's Winter Relief campaign, launched on Friday 1 June. The campaign aims to raise funds to help us provide food, shelter, clothing and financial assistance to Northern Tasmania this winter. We are grateful to have the support of our major sponsor, Bushby Property Group, continue for another year.

Share your warmth and donate to our Winter Relief here.

As part of the Winter Relief campaign, we have also planned a number of events to involve the community and support fundraising activities, which you can join in on:

  • Dare to Rewear
  • Pay It Forward Dinner
  • Hoodies for Homelessness
  • Winter Relief Gala Fundraiser

Dare to Rewear - Friday 6 July

Join us for our inaugural 'Dare to Rewear' fundraiser! Raising funds as part of City Mission's Winter Relief, our challenge, or dare, to you and your team is to 'rewear' something from one of our Mission Shops on Friday 6 July.

You can choose to wear a whole outfit or just a single item.

As an incentive, we'll be offering a prize for the best dressed team, judged by our mystery local celebrities. To be eligible, share your pic on Instagram using the hashtag, #daretorewear

This is a great way for your business, school, service club or team to get involved and help to raise funds for people in need in our local community.

Pay It Forward Dinner - Thursday 19 July, 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Now in its third year, our Pay It Forward Dinner is held in Morton's Place. Guests are asked to join us for a three-course dinner and invited to 'pay it forward' by paying what they think the experience is worth. All funds raised on the night are used to provide free meals to Morton's Place patrons throughout the year.

This year, our celebrity chefs will be Anna and Henry Terry and will prepare the entree.

So why Pay It Forward?

  • To encourage all of us to embrace the incredible power of giving;
  • To show each other that we care and that there is love, hope and magic all around us;
  • To know that we may be only one person in this world, but to one person, at one time, we are the world.

To book your spot at our dinner, please do so through Eventbrite here.

Hoodies for Homelessness - Friday 10 August

Register your business, school or group to wear a hoodie and raise awareness (and funds) for homelessness during National Homelessness Awareness Week.

You're also invited to join us for a special breakfast to be held at Morton's Place from 7:00am on Friday 10 August.
