Fundraising Activities


Kevin Coogan running a marathon

Having completed two half marathons to raise money for L'Arche Manchester the community leader, Kevin, decided to enlist the help of his more famous brother, Steve Coogan and together they have joined forces to run the Manchester Marathon in aid of the new community. Steve is very committed to the work of L'Arche and has been involved in fundraising on their behalf for many years.

Above and beyond the basic house building costs L’Arche would like to raise £100k in order to help deliver those elements that really make a difference to the quality of life in a house. We want to furnish the house practically and stylishly to a standard to be proud of. We want to plant out the garden with raised beds and a sensory garden; create a sitting out area, a covered activity space; even a quiet room for yoga, prayer and meditation.

All this costs money.
