The Rotary Club of Enniskillen’s Charity Christmas Concert, in aid of Action Mental Health, should prove a captivating event in Enniskillen West End Churches, St. Macartin’s Cathedral and St. Michael’s in the run up to Christmas.

This event will be held on Wednesday, December 6 at 7.30pm, and will feature Sligo Gospel, St. Macartin’s and St. Michael’s Choirs.
The first half of the concert will be held in St. Macartin’s Cathedral and the second half will be held in St. Michael’s Church.

This is the first time for Enniskillen Rotary Club to have done this charity concert at the Enniskillen Churches, according to Henry Robinson, President of the Rotary Club of Enniskillen, which is organising the seasonal venture.

Victorian mulled punch and mince pies will be served afterwards in the Cathedral Hall, he said.

Henry went on to explain that this concert is part of his fundraising year on behalf of Action Mental Health.
He pointed out that their efforts are for the Boost Programme within AMH - targeting the younger age group.

It is Henry and the Club’s idea to hold this special evening - working in partnership with AMH. He says everyone is welcome.

The upcoming Charity Christmas Concert is one of a number of activities that have been organised on behalf of Henry’s chosen project to provide dedicated space for the young people.

Henry explained: “Boost is aimed at 16 to 25 year olds who are concerned about their mental and emotional well-being. It provides a programme of positive steps and personal development to help them get back on track. At present there is no dedicated space for the programme.”

He continued: “The new room at the Drumcoo centre will give them the space and freedom to discuss and address mental health issues, which for many people, remain taboo. Boost provides opportunities for self-discovery, helping young people regain confidence, have fun and make new friends. The programme combines training, personal development and activities, to help build resilience and promote positive coping techniques alongside other young people facing similar challenges.”

Recently the Rotary Club of Enniskillen held a successful coffee morning in the Cathedral Hall, which raised £3,300. 
Other initiatives will be held in the New Year in order to help Henry and his fellow Rotarians see the new accommodation become a reality.
Henry expresses gratitude for the support received to date.
