Carryduff charity donates £4,300 to the Welcome Organisation

CARRYDUFF based charity HOPE03 (Help Overcome Poverty Everywhere), held a Golf Classic at Rockmount Golf Club during the summer to raise funds for the Welcome Organisation based in Belfast and have raised a magnificent sum of £4,300.

Peter O’Hara, Chairman of HOPE03 explained: “It gives me great pleasure to present a cheque for £4,300 to the Welcome Organisation.

“They work to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and rough sleeping. They do this by giving practical support, advice, information and access to a range of health and well being services to people living in the city.

“They aim to bring a little dignity and warmth to lives that do not have the “luxury” of a home. Their drop in support centre provides basic needs such as food, showers and laundry services and we are only too pleased to help them achieve this”.
