Mayor praises modern day Good Samaritans

Volunters at Bangor Castle Town Hall
I opened up the Town Hall on Thursday 24 April 2014 and welcomed volunteers from the Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul and Storehouse, the local foodbank to Bangor Castle to recognise the valuable contribution made.

After volunteering for all three organisations as Mayor over the Christmas period and supporting the Christmas Lunch initiative for those in need on Christmas Day at First Bangor Presbyterian Church I was delighted the welcome the volunteers to the Town Hall. The level of commitment given by the many volunteers is amazing and deserving of the highest recognition. We are honoured and privileged to have so many modern day Good Samaritans in our local community showing the Christian faith in action by reaching out and support those in need.

After refreshments and a short speech praising the volunteers work I then facilitated a talk and tour of the historic building.
