The relaunch of the Northern Ireland Football League Charity Shield in aid of Northern Ireland Hospice in early August raised a whopping £7,000.
Premiership champions Cliftonville scooped the shield over Irish Cup runners-up Ballymena United.
The Charity Shield returned to the Northern Ireland football calendar after a 14-year absence. Sincere thanks goes to both teams who helped raise a staggering £7,000 towards supporting the building of a state of the art Adult Hospice facility at Somerton Road in North Belfast which is set to open in late 2015.
An amazing £10.7 million has been secured to date through a combination of statutory, voluntary and philanthropic sources.
A further £2.3 million still needs to be raised to reach the £13 million price tag for the project which will provide the foundations for a legacy of hospice care in Northern Ireland for generations to come.
