Northern Ireland father and son raise £2,000 for SPUC by fasting on Christmas Day

At last month's conference in Belfast, Defending the Rights of Parents, Protecting Children, the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children were presented with a belated Christmas gift by the Woolsey family.

Pictured are yours truly, Kathy McQuaid of SPUC Northern Ireland and Gordon Woolsey. 

This is Gordon Woolsey who contacted us in late November 2011, to say that each Christmas for the previous four or five years he and his father, Don, had undertaken a sponsored fast on Christmas Day to raise money for one or two charities. They had decided that their next fast would aim to raise money for the Irish Mission of the Presbyterian Church and SPUC. We provided them with promotional material, flyers, T-shirts, badges etc. and through their business, (they run a petrol station) they gathered donations organised a raffle for a mountain bike and distributed literature and little feet badges. In total they raised £4000 and divided the sum between the two causes. Unfortunately Don wasn't able to come to the conference for the presentation of the cheque.
