The COGS Kidz Club, which was based at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Monkstown, recently closed its doors for the last time.

With the winding up of the organisation’s accounts, they generously donated £593.60 to the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.

Club representative Tommy McCready is glad that although the group is finishing, they were able to use the money in a positive way.

“We are very sorry that we have had to close our doors, but are delighted that we can help the Children’s Hospice with this donation. The NI Children’s Hospice is simply outstanding. Everyone associated with it deserves whatever help and support we can provide. Despite our situation, it is always a privilege to be in a position to do something to help a very deserving cause,” he said.

The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice provides respite and end of life care for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.
