Pro Bonos Christmas Concert Supporting Amh As Their Charity of the Year
On Tuesday the 11th December the Church of St George in High Street, Belfast was alive with the sound of music as The Law Society Choir – “The Pro Bonos” – presented their service of Nine Lessons and Carols.
The concert was followed by a retiring collection for Action Mental Health (AMH), the charity chosen by The President, Mr Michael Robinson as his charity for 2013, with many generous envelopes collected by AMH staff in their “Santa Sacks!”
An after party and supper was held in The Ivory Bar and Restaurant at Victoria Square where David Babington, Chief Executive of AMH helped to pick the raffle tickets and deliver some early Christmas presents to the lucky winners.
A very generous total of £2,005.32 was raised on the night and will be used by AMH in their programmes to enhance the quality of life and employability of people with mental health needs or a learning disability.
AMH staff and clients would like to thank everyone who took part in the event and we look forward to confirming a programme of activities including fundraising events throughout our year as the Law Society’s charity in 2013, which is also the charity’s 50th birthday year.
