Team trip to Kenya

20 Team members travelled 5,000 miles to visit the Metropolitan Sanctuary for Children, this included two of the charity Directors and two Development officers.

It was an amazing opportunity to see first hand the special work of all the Sanctuary staff and volunteers.

Since starting in 2014 her hard work, dedication and enthusiasm  has been unparralled and she has touched the lives of so many through her work here at BFD.  

We are thrilled to have Annabelle Murray on board, with lots of very exciting things coming up - stay tuned!

BFD Director Terry Fairfowl honoured in awards ceremony!

This month,  one of the Directors of Befrienders For Disability, Mrs Terry Fairfowl, was given an award by the Wise Women Foundation. The Wise Women Awards, founded by Pastor Marjorie Esomowei of Wisdom for Women International, recognise the achievements of women in ministry across the denominational spectrum.

Terry won the 'Naomi' award, presented to 'to a Christian woman of mature years who is actively serving her church or local community through good works.' We believe that Terry more than fulfilled the requirements here!

BFD is thrilled that Terry's tireless efforts to serve people with disabilities both here in Northern Ireland and in Kenya have been recognised in this way. She is truly an inspiration to all of us!
