St Anne’s Cathedral ‘Black Santa Appeal’ Donation for Relief Efforts in Aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines

Press Releases

Added on 12/11/2013

The annual ‘Black Santa’ Appeal run by St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast gratefully receives occasional donations throughout the year as well as in the run–up to Christmas and so is in a position to respond to certain crisis situations. As a result, the Cathedral’s ‘Black Santa’ Appeal is today sending a donation of £5,000 to aid agencies working with all those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

The Dean of Belfast, The Very Revd John Mann, says, ‘We have been moved and deeply saddened to hear of the huge loss of life and of the suffering to so many brought about by Typhoon Haiyan. While our prayers are with all those who have been affected by the disaster we hope that this donation will help at least in some small measure in the practical relief directed to the most vulnerable and will show the solidarity of the people of Northern Ireland with the people of the Philippines.’
