Supporting those who need it most



We would like to share a couple of photographs taken during the Wednesday Lunch Club's Christmas Dinner last week.

The guests of the Lunch Club were also interviewed that day and the footage was used in the Nolan Show on BBC One NI. If you missed the programme you can watch it here.

We would also like to thank our lovely volunteers who help at the Lunch Club every week.

Thank you.

Here's a really inspiring story. A group of young People from BCM Housing Support and Parents' Support, Dungannon were so grateful for all the support they have received that they decided to give something back to the community. Having had their own lives turned around they headed to Belfast on Wednesday armed with packs that included gloves, hats, fleece, water bottles etc.

To mark the end of their 150th anniversary year, Belfast based Neill's Flour teamed up with Patton’s Bakery, celebrity chef Jenny Bristow and students from the Belfast Metropolitan College to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest scone. They also decided to do a good deed and share this delicious scone with some local organisations including BCM.

Health and Social Care Board and the Public Health Agency have worked together to create the second edition of the Stay Well This Winter e-zine.

Please take a moment to read the e-zine and share it with older people or professionals you know.

Thank you


Yesterday (15 November 2017) saw the launch of the 18th year of the ‘Giving Tree’, a cross-community initiative run by Belfast Central Mission (BCM) and the Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) to help local children in need have a happier Christmas.
