Thank you for supporting our Good Shepherd Appeal

Schools from across our diocese joined us at a special celebratory Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral this week to mark the end of our Good Shepherd Appeal.

This year’s appeal raised funds for the Alan Shearer Activity Centre, a specialist recreational, sensory and social centre for children, young people and adults with disabilities.  These generous donations from our schools will help to ensure the Centre remains free of charge to over 4000 members.

“It was wonderful to see our schools come together in celebration of their fundraising efforts,” said Nicola Milne, Communication and Engagement Manager. “As always, we were blown away by the efforts of the young people involved.  A special thanks goes to the students from St Mary’s Catholic School for providing the music and singing that made our Mass such a joyful occasion.”
