Online Donation System for Westside Resource Centre

Over the years, Westside Resource Centre has received occasional donations from various sources. We also sometimes have minor raffles and draws during annual events - such as our Christmas Market - and these provide a fun way for people to support the Centre and to help us in the work that we do. 

The Resource Centre is very grateful for the supports that it receives and we have now set up a donations page with This step allows people to make a donation to the Centre by going online and this is particularly useful at the present time because of COVID-19. We hope that this approach gives another useful way of supporting the Centre... although we are looking forward to enjoying more face-to-face gatherings before 2021 is over.

You can access our donation facility by clicking the "Donate" button on the website homepage or directly at iDonate

Thank you for your support…and Happy New Year.

Culture Night 2020

Westside Writers' Group will be launching their "Write-on Anthology 2021" on Culture Night, Friday 18th September, from 6pm. This event is supported by Westside Arts Festival 2020.

The anthology is a collection of short stories, poems, songs and other writings from the Westside Writer’s Group and even contains a COVID-19 section which captures in story and verse the reality of the pandemic.

You can expect a delightful evening of music, songs, poems and stories from the group’s creative artists, both local and from abroad. Authors will read from their works and songwriters will perform their original songs: a literary and musical feast of creative writing.

The event is open to all and will take the form of a Zoom webinar. To register for the event, please click on the following link:

Join the event from 6 o'clock... very special guests expected.
