Mission's plea for public support in funding bid

By Amanda Poole

The Belfast Central Mission is calling on the public to support its bid for funding from the Coca-Cola 125 years celebratory Thank You Fund.

The Northern Ireland charity has been shortlisted to receive some of the £107,000 fund to be distributed to 15 non-profit community, voluntary and charitable organisations from across the island of Ireland.

BCM's Housing Support for Young People project, based in the Newtownards and Dungannon areas, has made the final 45 out of 600 submissions from various charities.

The project aims to help vulnerable young people adjust to independent living by giving them support, providing basic household items, offering budgeting help and health advice.

BCM now has a one-in-three chance of winning vital funding to continue its good work.
