Ortus – The Business Development Agency held their annual Christmas appeal on Friday (18th December) to raise funds for Whiterock Children’s Centre.
Ortus are delighted to announce £750 was raised for Whiterock Children’s Centre from their Christmas Appeal this December. The amount was raised through a Christmas morning at the Ortus offices on Northumberland Street, Belfast. A raffle was held and tenants and clients of the Twin Spires Complex joined in with the giving spirit.
The funds were raised to support the work of the Whiterock Children’s centre. The appeal from Whiterock aimed to bring Christmas cheer to children whose families had requested help in ensuring each child wakes up to presents under the tree on Christmas morning. This year, the centre received requests for over 70 children from families going through financial hardships and were overwhelmed with the generosity from the local community to ensure no child goes without. The amount raised by Ortus will also help purchase electricity, food, oil and gas for families struggling over the festive period.
“Ortus are dedicated to helping those in our community going through times of need. This December we heard of the Whiterock Children’s Centre appeal in our local community and the team at Ortus wanted to help as much as we could. There was a great festive atmosphere in the Twin Spires Complex on Friday morning and we are grateful to all of our tenants and clients for their very generous donations. To raise £750 for this cause is a fantastic demonstration of the community spirit within our complex.”Seamus O'Prey
