Betty McLean (Youth Programme Tutor), Denise Gourley (Youth Programme Mentor), Darren Porter and Ryan Hannon (Youth Programme participants) were all involved in a special street collection in aid of Charis Cancer Care on the streets of Cookstown on August 24.

The fundraiser was part of a social action project for their course. Charis support men and women affected by cancer at every stage of their journey. They also assist and support families and supporters of those living with cancer or any family member bereaved by cancer.
