Shirley Hopkins continues to Fundraise

Thanks to the phenomenal fundraising efforts of Shirley Hopkins (pictured left) the Cathedral continues to receive fundraising money from Drake’s IGA during COVID-19.

For many years now Shirley Hopkins has worked hard on a completely voluntary basis to maintain the fundraising partnership with St Joseph’s Cathedral and Drakes Supermarkets to deliver much needed maintenance and upkeep support through the keytag program. When shoppers use a special keytag at Drakes Supermarkets a portion of every sale goes directly to St Joseph’s Cathedral.

This month, Shirley received another cheque for $1,506 for St Joseph’s Cathedral. That takes our total up to $46,362!

This is an unbelievable gift for our Cathedral thanks to the incredible assistance of Shirley and those who support her in the background. Thank you to Shirley and her team for your incredible generosity towards our Parish, our Cathedral and our Diocese.

To help raise funds for St Joseph’s Cathedral, grab a keytag at the Parish Office or the front of the church and make sure to present it next time you shop at Drakes Supermarkets!
