Prepare a Place Diocesan Appeal for Gaza – Update

By Lynn Glanville

Gaza Glebe NS

Dublin and Glendalough’s ‘Prepare a Place Appeal’ for Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City has received almost €65,000 in donations to date. The organising committee is very grateful for all the contributions that have come in via Bishops’ Appeal so far and wishes to thank everyone who organised coffee mornings and other special events to raise funds to help the dioceses reach its target of €150,000. Their thanks go also to the many parishes and schools who donated the proceeds of collections at various services over Christmas and to individuals who remembered the Gaza appeal at their family gatherings over the festive season.

They would urge those who have organised events and parishes who took up collections but who have not yet submitted the proceeds to Bishops’ Appeal to do so as soon as possible. The appeal is ongoing and anyone who wishes to donate can still do so.

Donations to the ‘Prepare A Place’ Appeal can be made either by using the Bishops’ Appeal envelopes which are available in all parish churches or by electronic transfer to IBAN: IE31BOFI90001749839499 BIC: BOFIIE2D (reference Gaza). Cheques may be sent to: Bishop’s Appeal, Church of Ireland House, Church Avenue, Rathmines, Dublin 6 …read more
