The Mary Ann McCracken Foundation is delighted to announce an extra special addition to its Mary Ann birthday event on 8 July. Now featuring Baroness May Blood – ‘a current day Mary Ann’ – attendees will hear how she too has committed her life to fighting for the needs and rights of the people of Belfast and further afield.
In addition to hearing about Baroness Blood’s achievements, the Mary Ann McCracken Foundation will also highlight who and what Mary Ann championed in her 96 years including education, abolitionism, women’s and workers’ rights.
