A cheque for £6,000 was presented to Mr. George Irvine, for Air Ambulance Northern Ireland, at the morning service on 22nd January in St. Macartin’s Cathedral, Enniskillen.

The service costs around £5,500 per day to run and the crew of the helicopter comprises a pilot, doctor and paramedic 12 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Dean Hall raised £18,000 from his Christmas sit-out at the gates of the Cathedral for three charities.
