Kildare Outing a Great Success

Around ninety people showed up on Tuesday to support our Hope for Ethiopia charity on the bus trip to Kildare which helped raise an incredible £1000. The sun didn’t shine, but the temperatures remained fine and dry for the outing, which saw a mix of people of all ages. And at just 10.00 per ticket, it was money well spent. Commented organiser Eleanor McClelland “It was a marvellous day, and I would like to thank everyone who attended and helped raise funds for our mission in Ethiopia. People enjoyed the trip so much they were asking when the next one is taking place, and if we would consider another outing around Christmas. The shops were plentiful but expensive, yet that didn’t stop some of our retail hungry group bringing back bag loads of stuff. Having left the church at 9.15 am earlier that morning, the buses didn’t return until 8.30pm. Exhausted but well fed and watered no one had any complaints about what turned out to be a wonderful day of fun and fellowship together.
