Dromara Vintage and Classic Club had a successful summer show and handed out around £1,100 to three different organisations.
Club Chairman Brian McGrillen at a gathering in the Peter Morgan Cottage, Finnis, said £300 each would be handed over to St John’s Senior Citizens and St Michael’s Senior Citizens to assist with their Christmas lunches and £500 to Fleming Fulton School that would help with the summer school.
Mr Bill Norris and Mrs Maureen McGrillen accepted the cheques, on behalf of the churches and Karen Hancock received the cheque on behalf of the school.
Mr McGrillen said the success of the show was due to the hard work, support and generosity of many and thanked Dromara Football Club, including chairman John Owens and John Wright, for the use of their grounds and expressed appreciation to Robert Fee for providing car parking facilities.
He said: “I want to thank the volunteers, Mary and her team, the exhibitors and the public for their attendance as well as Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council, Knights of Malta, stall holders, those who provided entertainment and our thanks to the PSNI and we are grateful for the use of Peter Morgan’s Cottage.”
He expressed sympathy to the family of Margaret Best, ex honorary secretary of St John’s Mother’s Group, on their recent bereavement.
