Simon Richardson from Craigavon Area Food Bank was presented with a cheque for £450, part of the £2200 raised at the non-uniform day and rock concert last November.
Former student Katie Laverty accepted a cheque for £315 on behalf of Fields of Life from Lifeline student Katie Bell. The money raised at the year 13 Lifeline table quiz at Christmas will go towards the construction of a well.
These presentations only mark a small number of fundraising events that took place this year.
Years 11 and 12 organised a bun sale, while the sixth form Lifeliners organised a coffee morning. The money raised was used to fund our annual community events, the Senior Citizens’ Concert in October and the Santa Trail in December, to which p1 pupils from Millington and Moyallon Primary Schools were invited.
An assembly collection lifted £450 for the refugee crisis in Syria. A number of students then took part in the concern 24 hour Fast or Silence and raised £610 for Concern. This money was then doubled by the government.
Clearly, PC students involved in Lifeline have excelled themselves once again, in their compassion for those in need, whether at home or abroad, and in their willing service to the local community. Well done Lifeliners!
