Charity and community groups are advised that applications are now being taken for grants from the 2015 Black Santa Sitout.
Every year since 1976, the Dean of Belfast and members of the Cathedral Chapter have stood on the steps of St Anne’s Cathedral in the days before Christmas collecting donations for charitable causes.
Last year’s Sitout raised almost £200,000 for charities, and this was distributed to more than 200 charities and community organisations at the annual Good Samaritans’ Service in St Anne’s in February.
Application forms for a grant from the 2015 Sitout are available from St Anne’s Cathedral, or a form can be downloaded here.
Completed application forms should be submitted by Friday October 30 2015 at the latest. Postal address is: The Dean of Belfast Cathedral, Sitout Applications, c/o Nicholas Trimble, Donegall Street, Belfast, BT1 2HB.
Late applications WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
