Saintfield Christmas Charity Ride Organiser Joan Cunningham presented a cheque to Ian and Phyllis Hasson from Rock Ministries N.I. Trust last Thursday evening at Belfast’s Ramada Hotel.
Ian Hasson explained that the money raised will be used to help buy land for growing food crops for their partner organisation His Grace Ministries at Butangaala.
Previous Christmas Charity Rides also helped establish a church there as well as a primary school where over 60 of the 380 children are sponsored.
This year will be the 10th Anniversary of the Saintfield Christmas Charity Ride and Joan has said they are pulling out all the stops to make this the best ride ever.
She is also appealing to all the Santas from all over the country to mount up on Saturday 3rd December 2016 and ride into Saintfield Town.
