Nugent works at the heart of some of the hardest hit communities in the North
West and as such we are keenly aware of the pressures disadvantaged families and
individuals face. The Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation have donated ₤20,000
per year for the next 3 years to Nugent to help us provide desperately needed
The Gubay Crisis Fund will provide 1 off grants to support families and
individuals living within the Archdiocese of Liverpool where a relatively small
amount of funding can make a big difference.
Guest at the launch event, at Bishop Eton in Woolton, where treated to performance
from Visualise, the St Francis of Assisi school choir, and heard some of the
real stories of families we have helped so far.
A mother and her 5 children had to be rehoused, the children were sleeping on
the floor, her family were helping out with food donations and she was using a
neighbour's fridge and freezer to keep the food in. The school turned to Nugent
for help. "Mum was in tears with gratitude and relief when we were able to
get her a fridge freezer. It's made a life changing difference to one of our
families." Lay Chaplain of a High School, Archdiocese of Liverpool
Phil Thompson said of the Gubay Crisis Fund:- "This a fantastic
announcement, Nugent can now help people in crisis directly and quickly, and do
what they do best, giving families and young people the support they need to
help them to change their lives for the better."
