• Party to say “Thank You” to our Volunteers

    This year Cornerstone celebrates 25 years of helping the poor and vulnerable. During these years without the help and commitment of our Volunteers, we would have been unable to open our doors. We truly value their help very much and therefore decided to organise a party night at St. Kentigern’s Social Club so that we could express our gratitude to them.

  • Thank You for your support during the Harvest Season

    The support we received from schools and colleges this Harvest has been phenomenal. Words cannot express our gratitude for their generous donations of food to the Centre. Each year we think it cannot get much better and this year was no exception! It would be impossible to list all their names, but we wish to thank all the staff, pupils, students and parents involved for their support.

  • One of Cornerstone’s Best Friends

    Back in the late 1990’s, Sr. Pauline Gaughan - RIP (who was one of the founders of Cornerstone) and her management team, approached the Bishop of Salford for help in acquiring more office space, as the port-a-cabin they operated from was not big enough to fulfil their needs at that present time. The Bishop referred their request to one of the Diocesan charities, namely the Catholic Welfare Societies. Their Executive Officer at that time was a man named Tony Murray and this was to be the start of many years of Tony’s involvement with Cornerstone.

  • Cornerstone's New Choir

    For some time the staff at Cornerstone have been contemplating about starting up our own choir. Two weeks ago we had our first rehearsal, where we had members of staff, volunteers, and clients. Mrs Rosamund Meehan, a retired head teacher of music, took charge of the group. With weekly rehearsals and harmonies getting better, there is great excitement and anticipation for the first performance of the group on October 21st at St Kentigern's Club in Fallowfield. There we will be celebrating our 25 year anniversary, to say Thank You to all our volunteers for their commitment and service to the centre. Our gratitude to Mrs Meehan for her time, expertise and leadership. As they say " I'm sure it will be alright on the night !"

  • Trip of a Life Time to Rome

    As we approach the end of the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has requested to meet with 6,000 poor, vulnerable and homeless people in Rome for 3 days of prayer and reflection. As we know Pope Francis has a great affinity for the poor and homeless. It is not unusual for him to go out at night in Rome to feed and spend time with them and had showers installed at the Vatican especially for their use.
