Andy Pollak, Journalist, researcher, editor and expert on North-South cooperation in Ireland, will be walking from Belfast to Dublin in the first fortnight of July along paths and back roads and talking to people he meets along the way. Why? "Firstly, I want to write a book about it; secondly, I want to fund-raise for two homeless charities, Depaul and Belfast Central Mission."
We would like to say thank you to a wonderful team of girls from Bloomfield Collegiate School in Belfast for making a lovely presentation about BCM at the Youth and Philantropy Initiative Final, which took place on Friday 13 May 2016. Thank you for choosing BCM and for acting as our ambassadors.
Kirk House residents and their relatives have recently created a unique fundraising cookbook, containing residents' favourite recipes. You can make a delicious range of tray bakes, scones, bread and pastry using those well-loved and tested recipes. This amazing cookbook costs only £5.00 and all the money raised will go towards the Kirk House Garden Fund.
Congratulations to our 'Famous Five'- Leona Larkham, Ruth Quaile, Charlotte Turner, Nora Donnelly and Laura McGeehan- who completed the Belfast City Marathon Relay for BCM on Monday 2nd May, raising over £800 to date for BCM's Housing Support Projects in Dungannon & Armagh!
We want to say thank you to Teresa Kavanagh, who was training really hard to be in the team, but suffered an injury and couldn't be there on the day. Thanks too to Leona Larkham who decided to help the team and fill Teresa's place with a very short notice.
