Shelter NI at the annual Good Samaritans Service at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, on Sunday February 7, more than 220 charities received a share of the money raised during the 2015 Black Santa Sit-out. Dean John Mann’s fifth Christmas Sit-out as he maintains a tradition established by the late Dean Sammy Crooks almost 40 years ago.
The 39th annual Sit-out raised £195,000 and at the service, well-loved local comedians John Linehan, Jimmy Cricket, Gene Fitzpatrick and William Caulfield gave up their time to present cheques to charities and community groups who strive to make life better for others.
Thank you for your generosity.
