Abseil Fundraiser
On the 10th of May seven brave volunteers abseiled down the Europa Hotel in Belfast to raise funds for The Wider Circle. A huge thank you to our volunteers and everyone who sponsored them! This contribution will help us to continue to deliver our healing programmes. Further sponsorship and donations are very welcome. Please use the 'mydonate' button at the top right of this page to donate online or contact the office for more information.

The Wider Circle is funded by Santander Foundation, The Lloyds Bank Foundation for NI, Belfast City Council's Good Relations Unit and voluntary donations.
