The Discovery Gospel Choir and the High Hopes Choir entertained a packed Christ Church Cathedral on Sunday November 27 for ‘A Place to Call Home’, a benefit concert for the Dublin & Glendalough Refugee Housing Appeal.
Organised by the Dean’s Vicar, the Revd Abigail Sines, the concert raised over €1,800 for the appeal which supports the Irish Refugee Council’s pilot housing project. This project aims to help people who have been granted leave to remain in Ireland move from Direct Provision to independent living by providing transitional accommodation along with individually tailored support to help them find work and integrate in their local communities.
Dublin & Glendalough has pledged to raise €300,000 for the project over three years. To contribute to the appeal, cheques can be forwarded to: the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough, Church House, Church Avenue, Rathmines, Dublin 6 (marked Housing Appeal). Donations can also be lodged directly to: DIOCESAN FUNDS OF DUBLIN AND GLENDALOUGH, Bank of Ireland, College Green, Dublin 2, BIC: BOFIIE2D, IBAN: IE50 BOFI 9000 1769 3548 78.
