The Archdeacon of Clogher, the Venerable Brian Harper, Rector of Magheracross Parish and his neighbouring Minister, Revd John Beacom from Ballinamallard Methodist Church, have been well wrapped up and nourished with warm food for their 12-hour sit-out for charity to-day, Wednesday, 19th December from 8am to 8pm.

Taking up “residence” in a gazebo on the pavement outside Magheracross Parish Church, Ballinamallard, they received plenty of support from members of their own congregations and passers-by.

Local businesses provided hot food and refreshments throughout the day.

This year, the charities supported by the two Ministers are the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (Enniskillen) ad CLIC Sargent, a national charity supporting children and young people with cancer.
