Hill Street turns up the heat for Hospice sit-out

Winter is well and truly in the air and as temperatures drop Hill Street Retailers are getting their winter woollies on in preparation for John Dalzell MBE’s famous sit out which will launch this Saturday 15th December and run until Christmas Eve.

John Dalzell’s Sit Out, which has raised over £1m to date for The Southern Area Hospice, is a challenge which sees him enduring the wet and windy weather of the Christmas season for 10 days in a bid to raise vital funds for The Hospice.

The Hill St traders come out in force each year to support John in his famous sit out and are delighted to show their support for him again this year.

Speaking to Newry Times, Regional Marketing Officer for the Hospice, Sarah Colgan commented,

“Every year John endures the cold weather to raise funds for the Hospice and it is wonderful to see local businesses giving a helping hand to John in his famous sit-out. John’s Sit-Out brings a warmth and a sense of community spirit to Hill Street at Christmas which makes the area very special at this time of year.

“I hope people get their winter woollies on and come out again to show their support for both Hill Street and for John Dalzell this Christmas.”

John Dalzell MBE’s Christmas Eve Band Parade will take place this year at 12pm and he asks that all bandsmen come along to give a little bit of their time to take part in the parade.

If you would like to make a donation to the John Dalzell Sit Out Appeal in aid of Southern Area Hospice Services please come down to his sit out on Hill Street which starts on Saturday 15th December or send your donation to: SOUTHERN AREA HOSPICE SERVICES, FREEPOST BEL 3833, NEWRY, BT34 2BR.
