The Oldies

Support our Long Walk Home with Wayside Chapel  

On Friday, 29 November, my team will be walking in Long Walk Home, the 28km night walk from Parramatta to Kings Cross. 

Every week, a person sleeping rough has to walk 28km looking for a place to lay their head at night. We will be walking to raise awareness and fundraise for Wayside Chapel.

Wayside Chapel and NRMA Insurance thanks you for supporting Long Walk Home and taking steps to help people experiencing homelessness.

Our Achievements

We provided a warm welcome, a cup of coffee and an emergency meal for 100 people.

We provided access for 153 people to attend on-site Centrelink clinic and receive assistance.

We provided a hot shower with toiletries and a change of clothes for 120 people on the street.

We have provided a breakfast and nutrition program for 100 people to teach cooking skills and raise awareness about healthy choices.

Kay, your cousin said that his grandfather walked that walk leaving Guildford Monday morning & returning Friday afternoon. He walked mostly along the Parramatta River...a bit different nowadays...
