Coldest Night of the Year

On Saturday, February 24th, thousands of people all across Canada will be walking to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, homelessness, and hunger.

The Belleville and area walk is raising money for Grace Inn Shelter. The walk that TEAM ST. THOMAS’ will be involved in, starts at Grace Inn Shelter on 315 Church St. at 4:00pm on Sat. Feb. 24 and at 5 pm we begin our route of 5 km or 2 km. A light meal will be served at 6 pm at St. Thomas’ Church Hall.

The route heads south on Church St., then goes east on Victoria Ave., cuts across on Herchimer for the 5 km route and Charles St. for the 2 km route.

We follow Bridge St. back to St. Thomas’ Church (for meal) and then head back to Grace Inn. Please consider joining TEAM ST. THOMAS’ or making a donation.
