Kelly family open garden for foodbank donations in memory of Aurelia

The family of Ballymena woman Aurelia Kelly who died following a road traffic collision last month have opened the garden of their home to aid the local Foodbank in her memory.

Extending sympathies to her family at the time of her passing, The Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, said: “Aurelia was much loved by her family and by the parish families in Connor diocese where she lived and served. She was a lady who made a wonderful contribution to the lives of those around her.”

Mrs Kelly had gathered donations for the Foodbank from neighbours and passers-by from her garden in the past and, in her memory, her husband Rev Trevor Kelly, curate of the Church of Ireland parish of Drummaul, Duneane & Ballyscullion, and their two children have decided to open their garden for donations in December.
