Black Santa appeal hands out £126,000

Tim McGarry will be underlining that life for many at home and abroad is no laughing matter when he hands out grants to 214 charities in St Anne's Cathedral tomorrow.

They will range from £300 to £500 each, with £20,000 to Christian Aid for work overseas.

Some £126,000 was given to the Black Santa appeal just before Christmas and this timely largesse from Tim McGarry will raise a few welcome smiles tomorrow.
