ENABLE World Cafe

3 people from Columcille will attend this event on 3rd May in the morning. We will update after the event

new items and flooring

Over the last several months we have been purchasing new items for Columcille. The cafe has new flooring, new cutlery and beautiful new aprons. The craft room has new shelving, flooring and new paint work. More work is planned to upgrade the joinery area and change the ffice space. We very much appreciate the income form charitable trusts that enables us to make these improvements.

Farewell to our fundraiser.

In January we said farewell to Grace Canham who has been fundraising for Columcille for 3 years. Grace has raised a substantial amount of money over this time – many thanks to Grace and to the charitable trusts and other donors who have supported us. Grace has moved on to work as a fundraiser for the Homeless World Cup.

Into January and February

We have settled back into the post- Christmas way of life at Columcille and now look forward to our Burns Lunch on Tuesday 29th January and the St Brides play and celebration on Tuesday 5th February
