The funds have enabled the charity to provide an additional 1,460 care hours to 86 female carers and those they care for who use Crossroads' Holiday Scheme, Building Bridges and Community Venture projects. The funds also enabled Crossroads to purchase new computer equipment enabling the extension of Crossroads Community Venture into gardening.

Crossroads provides respite and meaningful care to those caring for loved ones. Through the charity's projects, carers receive a well deserved break whilst those they look after enjoy activities, learn life skills and receive support to enter voluntary or paid employment.
Alex Wilson, Crossroads Care's Fund-raising Co-ordinator, said: "It has been insightful and inspiring to work with Mosaic's congregation this year. The support has helped the charity to grow throughout the course of the year and Mosaic's fundraising events and activities have helped raise awareness of the charity's life enhancing work. The amount raised will enable the charity to provide more care hours to more people, a service those caring for someone within our community are increasingly reliant upon".

This years Mosaic Conference takes place at the Villa Marina on Friday November 9th and Saturday 10th November, with the theme 'Now is the Time'.
Alongside Helen Edwards, Conference Host, the speakers this year will include, Lorraine Wright of Green Pastures Church, Ballymena, Northern
Ireland and Living Hope Community Church Lead Pastor, Jonathan Stanfield.

The conference fee is £35 with a £25 concession for students and the over 60s. Places can be booked on the Living Hope Community Church website,
