Rector of St Macartan’s Cathedral Raises £2,200 For The Alzheimer’s Society

Diocesan News

Added on 08/02/2013

The Reverend Canon Noel Regan, Rector of St Macartan’s Cathedral, undertook his annual sit–out for a day in Clogher during December, raising the sum of £2,200 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Canon Regan and volunteers held a collection outside Fannin’s Shop on the village’s Main Street.

Speaking about the generosity of local people, Canon Regan said: ‘I really enjoyed being Black Santa for the day, and I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the Clogher community. I am very proud that all our fundraising efforts for the charity will help make a real difference to those affected by dementia. I would like to thank all those who so generously supported us on the day.’

Janet Plunkett, Community Fundraising Manager with NI Alzheimer’s Society, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to the Reverend Noel Regan for all the time and energy he put into the ‘Black Santa Collection’ for Alzheimer’s Society. As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals and communities across Northern Ireland to help us support people to live well with dementia today and fund research to find a cure for tomorrow.’
