Coffee Morning.

A coffee morning will take place on Friday 16th February in The Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely 10a.m – 1p.m. All proceeds from this fundraiser will help support the great work of Sr. Ursula Henchion and the Missionary Sisters of the Assumption in Port Alfred, South Africa. All this work is done within the spirit and framework of the local Society of St Vincent de Paul Conference, St.James, Port Alfred.

Besides assisting individual families in need and who fall upon hard times, the programmes provide regular relief for many in the community. Your generous donations will enable them to continue with a number of their activities, including the distribution of food parcels, the provision of school uniforms,  daily meals for the children at the Siyazama Educate Centre and  assistance to families in distress.   Thanks to the generosity of supporters winter blankets were distributed last winter – yes, it gets very cold during their relatively short winter.

With the support and encouragement of their partners, overseas benefactors and friends from near and far, the charity is looking forward to being able to continue with these programmes during 2018.

Your generosity makes a difference to people’s lives.  Thank YOU.
