A charity in Aughnacloy which has been operating successfully for many years has expressed its thanks after closing up shop and has presented more than £10,000 to two well known and very worthy causes.
Marjory Mulligan of Aughnacloy Charity Shop presented cheques to Queen's University's Research Department into arthritis and Air Ambulance NI on Friday last in the town.
After making the presentations, Marjory told the Courier: "It is with a heavy heart we all said, 'good bye', to the charity shop in Aughnacloy.”
