Mission Guild Patron Drinks
The St Peter’s College Mission Guild, founded in 1923, has a long history of service to the School and the wider community and today raises in excess of $30,000 each year for Anglican charities. These include St John’s Youth Services, Magdalene Centre, Elizabeth Mission, Outer Southern Hub and Christies Beach Emergency Relief. The Mission Guild have also supported Sony Camp, 40 Hour Famine, Philanthropy at Christmas, Magdalene Centre Gift Boxes, Hampers at Christmas and the Star Bear Program which supports grieving children and young people through the debilitating fear and loss experienced after losing a sibling, parent or other significant person.
Members of the Mission Guild raise funds through a number of initiatives and activities including the Mission Guild Recycled Uniform Shop and Pop-Up Stalls which collectively raise over $25,000 each year. Other initiatives include an annual High Tea and Movie Night. The Mission Guild also facilitates and supports Service Learning within the School with students given the opportunity to prepare meals for the homeless at the Magdalene Centre. Students and families are also encouraged to assist those less fortunate through the Mission Guild Christmas Hamper Appeal.
