St Mary’s to present large cheque to NI Hospice

Friday December 11th 2015

hospiceThe parish of St Mary’s, Crumlin Road, Belfast, will present a cheque for £2,550 to the Northern Ireland Hospice at a service on Sunday December 20.

The Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy, will be guest speaker at this Christingle service, on a day the parish has named ‘Hospice Sunday.’

A representative of the Hospice will attend to receive the cheque from the rector, the Rev Robin Moore, who will lead the service.

This fantastic amount has been raised largely due to the generosity of the late Miss Molly Crothers, a parishioner of St Mary’s. In her will, Molly had requested that her furniture and some personal effects be sold and the proceeds given to the parish and then donated to the NI Hospice.

That sale raised £2,050, and the parish added to this the sum of £500 raised by parishioners who, instead of filling their church with fruit and vegetables at Harvest time, made a donation for the Hospice.

This is the second year that the parish has raised funds for the Hospice at Harvest.

The cheques will be presented during the 11am Christingle Service.
