MISSION PARAGUAY 2018
In July 2018 I will be joining a team of 8 parishioners from Annaghmore Parish Church to travel to Asuncion, Paraguay. With SAMS UK & Ireland, we will be working to repair Churches and homes and to work with the young people and children. To help raise funds for this project, I will be holding a Black Bag Collection. Bags of unwanted clothes, paired shoes and curtains can be left in the porch of the Parish Hall anytime in the next couple of weeks. No ripped or dirty clothes, ladies boots or quilts or pillows please. Thanks for your support. Hannah Meredith

BALLYMORE CHARITY CRAFT GROUP
Congratulations to the members of the Craft Group for their hard work and amazing fundraising achievements in the last year. On Monday evening they were able to present £1000 to Pretty ‘n’ Pink – Breast Cancer Charity and £1000 to Macmillan Cancer Support. The ladies also presented a large selection of knitted garments to Drop Inn Ministries and these items will be sent to eastern Europe where they are desperately needed. Anyone who would like to join the group should contact Mrs Dorothy Scott. Donations of wool would also be very much appreciated and can be left in the Church porch. Thanks.

CHURCH TOWER
In the incoming week the contractors hope to start putting up the scaffolding on the Church tower and to begin the installation of the phone antennae. This may mean that there will be limited access to the Church car park on occasion. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.
