THE next time you are in town on Market Day (Tuesdays) why not call in at First Lisburn Presbyterian Church Hall and treat yourself to a delightful lunch for just £3.50 and at the same time support the work of Christian Aid.
Each Tuesday from 11-30am to 2-00pm, a team of volunteers from several local churches prepare a selection of delicious home-made soups which is served with bread and cheese, followed by tea or coffee and a biscuit.
All proceeds from this fundraising venture go directly to Christian Aid in support of their development projects.
Now in the 30th year of this tremendous work, the teams have raised over £102,000 for Christian Aid since the start of the 'Bread and Cheese Lunch' project in 1981.
The church, right in the heart of Lisburn city centre, extends an open invitation to partake of the lunches on a regular basis and enjoy the chat and welcome of the team of volunteers who work enthusiastically each week in support of this worthy charity.
