We come together for social and spiritual events, short courses and pilgrimages, enjoying each other’s company as much as the special ambience of Park Place. We also offer the Sisters practical support through our fundraising.

Invitations to social events such  as the Teas, performances, concerts, Craft Fairs and Quiz Nights organised by the Friends, are part of the news.

Over the years, the Friends have helped hundreds of people in the developing countries and today more than every before, the Friends have joined forces with all those who are committed to healing our broken world and protecting our fragile Earth. So what are you waiting for? Please become a Friend of Park Place Centre and experience the joy of putting a smile on the faces of those on the margins of society.

Any contribution you can make, large or small, in cash or in kind, will be most gratefully received by the Sisters. If you wish to become a member of the Friends of Park Place Centre or for more information, please contact our chairperson : at

Your donation will be gratefully received no matter how small or big and if you gift aid it, that will be even better. The money we receive goes directly to the people in need without a middle person or administrative cost. In fact when the sterling is converted to local currency, it goes even further to buy the basic amenities such as food or winter bedding i.e blankets etc. Every little helps and it certainly puts a smile on the faces of those in need.
