Cyclists raise funds for Denis Hurley Centre in Argus Tour

2014-03-07 00:00

A TEAM of nine cyclists from Durban’s Emmanuel Cathedral, including parish priest Father Stephen Tully, are taking part in Sunday’s 109-kilometre Argus Cycle Tour in the Cape as a sponsored ride to raise funds for the Denis Hurley Centre.

Although construction of the new centre has already started, more than R5 million still needs to be secured in order to complete the building.

The centre, alongside Emmanuel Cathedral in the CBD, will be used as a multi-purpose facility to promote outreach and training for the homeless, the unemployed and refugees, as well as provide primary health care and community building programmes.

The centre will be a legacy project honouring Archbishop Denis Hurley OMI, who was bishop and archbishop of the city from 1947 to 1992, and who played a signifi­cant role in opposing apartheid and promoting the vision of a just society in South Africa.

You can make a donation to the Denis Hurley Centre Fund at First National Bank account 6220 4261 002, branch code 221426. Please indicate on your deposit slip your name, telephone number and the word “Argus” so your contribution can be recorded and acknowledged.
