Two hundred and twenty local charities, including those working with the homeless and with people with mental health issues, received grants from Belfast Cathedral’s Black Santa Appeal at a special service on Sunday February 3rd.
The Sit-out by Dean Stephen Forde and Canons of the Cathedral in the week before Christmas 2018 raised £168,000. Special guest Lynda Bryans, journalism lecturer and former broadcaster, handed over the cheques at Sunday’s Good Samaritans Service.
Shelter NI received £800 cheque this year which is very appreciated and will contribute to help us with our work on combatting homelessness and poor housing conditions in Northern Ireland.
