AS students depart the Holyland for another summer, a pensioner who has lived in the area her entire life has described how the maze of streets has been transformed
A West Belfast pensionera says she’s had “the heart knocked out of me” after money she had raised for a children’s charity was stolen in a break-in. Sarah Maloney and her family organised a car boot sale to raise money for Smile Train, the world’s leading cleft lip and palate surgery charity.
OLDER people in the community are being urged to be on their guard after an elderly pensioner was conned out of almost £2,000 in a phone scam. The pensioner, who resides in the Andersonstown Fold, was contacted by a person claiming to be from the Ministry of Justice and informed she was to receive £7,000 but needed to pay £1,600 for tax purposes.
