Cliftonville Caring for Carers 

At the core of 4 Corners is the desire to see small acts of grace and generosity all over the city of Belfast. This morning we are celebrating a huge act of caring from Cliftonville FC. Every year as part of the festival we host a Banquet at the City Hall in conjunction with the Lord Mayor. In previous years we have hosted the homeless and refugees and asylum seekers. This year we are celebrating the unsung heroes who provide full time care for friends or relatives. Our Caring for Carers Banquet costs around £1500 to run and we started a Just giving page to raise the money. 

We were thrilled when Cliftonville FC found about the fundraiser and offered to not only auction a shirt but to match whatever amount of money was raised. The shirt sold for £500 so yesterday Joe Gormley and Gerard Lawlor from Cliftonville came to City Hall to hand over £1000 to the appeal. That will pay for more than 50 meals at the Banquet. Thanks again for your kind support and for epitomising the spirit of 4 Corners Festival.
