Past President Harry Corscadden Honoured
In recognition of the huge input to the Harmony Community Trust of the late Harry Corscadden, the new Activity and Conference Centre at Glebe House was renamed after him at a special ceremony in May 2009.
Harry played the leading role in the establishment of Glebe House; he worked continually to see it and its aims come to fruition and went on to become the HCT President. After he had retired from this position he still remained very much involved and active in the work of Glebe House.
Even in his 90's he was still actively involved and would regularly visit and take a hands-on interest. His last visit was in September 2008, shortly before he died aged 101 years. Harry gave a lot of his time and expertise and asked for nothing in return.
The naming ceremony celebrated his life with Glebe House, tributes and memories were made by Helen Honeyman, Chairperson, Harmony Community Trust, Past President David Boyd, HCT Treasurer and Belfast Rotary Club, Dee Kelly, Past Co-ordinator for International Voluntary Service NI and Chairperson HCT and his grand daughter Sheila Pulham who was also a past volunteer at Glebe House.
Helen said: "Harry was one of the unsung heroes of Northern Ireland, who, through his involvement with Glebe House and its ongoing peace and reconciliation work, has given thousands of children, young people and adults opportunities of hope and a brighter future." The Plaque was then unveiled by his son Past President Alistair and Jennifer Corscadden.
