Soup Lunch held today in aid of Nepal Earthquake victims a success

nepal earthquake appeal 2015Today our four churches came together for a soup lunch to raise money for the Nepal Earthquake disaster. The four church leaders said they were delighted with the great turnout but more importantly they were overwhelmed by the generosity of the community. The total amount raised at the soup lunch was £4,341.79. The clergy wished to pass on their sincerest thanks to everyone who contributed to the appeal and that this significant amount of money would undoubtedly change the lives of those who are suffering in Nepal. All the money will be sent to Tearfund who are currently working out in Nepal.

We were also delighted to be be joined by Johnny and Shamila McNabb from Trillick. Shamila is from Nepal and her 75 year old mother lives in Kathmandu and was affected by the earthquake. Shamila saw the soup lunch in last weeks Fermanagh Herald and said she wanted to come and thank the community for their fund raising efforts.

The clergy also wished to thank all those who assisted in preparing the soup lunch and for all the work that went on behind the scene to make this such a success.

Please take some time to have a look through the photos and we would be delighted to read your comments. If any one would like to contribute to the appeal then please contact your minister or a comment to get in touch with you.
