Centacare Ceduna hosted a cake stall sale today and will be holding two events later this week to raise awareness for homelessness during Homelessness Prevention Week.

The centre will be hosting a sausage sizzle on Thursday at 12pm, which will be followed by a soup kitchen on Friday at 12pm.

Both will take place outside the Ceduna Memorial Hall and are free to attend.

Community members are invited to come along to support the cause.

The Homelessness Australia slogan for the week is ‘action and innovation’ and Centacare program manager Rebecca Tuohy said it was about highlighting the plight some people face.

“We hope to raise awareness around homelessness and the impact it has on people,” she said.

“There are events happening all over the country this week and this is how the issue is highlighted.”

Centacare hosted the cake stall at the Memorial Hall which helped raise money for the Knights of Malta, a charity which makes coats for homeless people and donates them to organisations such as Centacare to pass on to needy people.

Ms Tuohy said the cake stall was a precursor for the events on Thursday and Friday.
