A book of fascinating stories and images from beyond the gates of Parliament Buildings is raising funds for the Marie Curie Hospice in Belfast.

Stormont – An Illustrated and Spoken History of Stormont, East Belfast, is the latest book by author Aidan Campbell and takes in the Holywood Arches, Upper Newtownards Road, Bloomfield, Ballyhackamore, Knock crossroads, Summerfield, the Ulster Hospital and Ballybeen.

It costs £10 and is available from Hillmount Garden Centre and Marie Curie Hospice.

Aidan Campbell, said: “Stormont is a spoken and illustrated book accompanied by old photos telling how the area developed from a rural to an urban landscape over the past 100 years or so.”

Sue Curry, manager of Marie Curie Hospice Belfast, said: “One outstanding volunteer Aidan Campbell has dedicated all proceedings of his books to Marie Curie Cancer Care.”

To date Aidan has raised £86,000 for Marie Curie Hospice to improve patient care experience.
