|(26/9/2018) Save the date - 11 May 2019
Next year the Fellowship will be celebrating its 80th anniversary. A number of events will organised to mark this milestone and the first to be announced is the Annual Dinner. It will take place in The Stormont Hotel on Saturday 11 May 2019 and it should be a night to remember.
As always members will go free as guests of the Fellowship and they can bring along friends and the only charge will be the cost of the meal. The night is a chance for old friends to meet up in wonderful surroundings. It is not a fundraiser.
Make sure you leave this date free for this "Must Attend Event".
|(23/9/2018) Congratulations and Thanks to Stephen Connolly
This morning over 4,000 runners took part in the Belfast Half Marathon. Among the runners was Stephen Connolly son of our members Christine and Ronnie. After just over 13 gruelling miles Stephen finished an unbelievable 35th out of over 4,000 in a magnificent time of 1 hour 18 minutes and 47 seconds. Stephen was running to help raise funds for the Fellowship. The running total at the minute is £500 with hopefully more to come.
A massive thank you to Stephen for this wonderful effort.
