Mayor launches Hospice Coffee Morning event

MEMBERS of Ballymoney Hospice Support Group joined the Mayor to launch a charity coffee morning with the intention of raising funds for the Northern Ireland Hospice.

This event will be held in Riada House on Friday 17th May from 10.30am until 12 noon.

Mayor Evelyne Robinson said: “The Ballymoney Hospice Support Group is very active and I am pleased to be able to lend my support in raising funds for the Northern Ireland Hospice.

“The excellent work of Hospice, caring as they do for the entire family and not only the patient, is of paramount importance. The North West Hospice Team operating within the Ballymoney area provides sorely needed support for many in our borough.

“This support for both carers and patients is worthy of our deep gratitude.

“I extend a very warm welcome to all the residents to come to Riada House on 17th May and support this very worthy charity.”

Northern Ireland Hospice is a local charity caring for adults, children and young people with life-limiting and life threatening conditions. Although the Hospice receives some Government, it essentially relies heavily on voluntary donations and legacies to fund its much needed services.
